U Saw Sein Tun of Kayah State constituency 4 raised the first question asked if there is a plan to upgrade Dawtama Nge Basic Education sub-High School in Dimawhso Township.
Deputy Minister for Education U Win Maw Tun replied that there were only 177 high school students in the sub-High School and since it is only about a mile away from Dimawhso Basic Education High School there it is not in the priority list for upgrade in the 2019-2020 Academic Year. Furthermore at the moment the school is permitted to teach high school subjects.
Similarly U Myint Naing of Rakhine State constituency 5 asked if there is a plan to upgrade Sin Oh Chaing Village Basic Education sub-High School in Kyauktaw Township during 2019-2020 Academic Year. Here too Deputy Minister for Education U Win Maw Tun replied that there were only 67 high school students in the sub-High School and it is only about six miles away from Apaukwa Basic Education High School and thus it is not in the priority list for upgrade during 2019-2020 Academic Year. As in the reply made to earlier question the school too is permitted to teach high school subjects said the Deputy Minister.
U Hla San of Magway Region constituency 1 on the other hand asked if there is a plan to provide teaching aid cars to government technical institutes and government technical high schools in the same way as provided to No. 5 Industrial Training Center (Magway).
