Rawalpindi/ISLAMABAD - All Pakistan Private School Management Associated (APPSMA) has announced to reopen the schools from Monday (tomorrow), making it clear that they would not accept any forced leaves come what may.

In an announcement, President APPSMA Ibrar Ahmad Khan said if the administration tried to forcibly shut the schools, they would challenge it in the high court. He said more than 50% schools have fulfilled the security requirements and the others are in process of doing so. He said the government and the administration instead of causing problems should help in the reopening of schools so that precious time of the children is not wasted. He said the government can continue to check the security and wherever needed should pin point the loopholes but it should not become a hurdle in the education of students. He said the increase in holidays has almost paralysed the education system and the parents are worried about the future of their children.

Meanwhie, the National University of Modern Languages (NUML) will remain closed till January 25, 2015.

According to university spokesperson, the NUML will remain closed until 25th January 2015; however, the university staff will continue to perform its duties.
