In a recent development, the Department of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) has issued a stern warning to teachers across the country regarding unauthorized coaching activities in schools. The cautionary letter, dispatched by the DSHE, emphasizes the need for proper implementation of the new curriculum in secondary level educational institutions.

DSHE, the authority behind the directive, has explicitly stated that any form of coaching disguised as "special classes" will not be tolerated. The responsibility falls directly on the shoulders of the institution's head, who will be held personally accountable if students are found to be coerced into coaching sessions.

The notification serves as a reminder that any secondary level educational institution under the purview of the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education must refrain from engaging in such practices. It underscores the importance of upholding the integrity of the educational system and ensuring that students are not unduly pressured into extraneous coaching activities.

This proactive measure by the Education Department aims to safeguard the quality of education and uphold ethical standards within school environments.

 It sends a clear message that any deviation from the prescribed curriculum will be met with strict consequences.

Educational stakeholders and authorities are urged to adhere to these guidelines to foster an environment conducive to holistic learning and development among students.
