Statement of civil society organization on students’ actions against National Education Law following the overdue 60-day deadline for negotiation

  1. Education sector reform during transition period is very important and vital for the future of Myanmar
  2. The 60-day period for negotiation declared by students has passed and students have resumed their protest activities against the National Education Law. Student from Mandalay have begun their march from Mandalay to Yangon on the 20 January while students from other parts of the country have carried out their protest activities in their respective areas as well.
  3. We, the undersigned civil society organizations,fully support the student’s demand for negotiation for 11 points of amendments to the National Education Law which are important and fundamental requirement for Myanmar’s future democratic education system.
  4. Weurge the government authorities to completely avoid committing any kind of violence against the students whether it is during the daytime when students are carrying out their protest activities or night time when students are resting and violence against them will go unseen.
  5. We also urge the government and parliaments to begin dialogue with the students for amendment of the National Education Law without delay and resolve the matter peacefully.
  6. We strongly urge the international community especially international governments and international non-governmental organizations providing either financial and/or technical assistances for education sector reform to ensure that the objectives of their assistances is to genuinely and effectively support the National Education Law’s compliance with democracy and human rights principles and to encourage the Myanmar government and parliament to begin dialogue with students.
