Central School vs. “Un-Central” School: Attention Discrimination
While excessive attention is given to Central schools, attention is desperately scarce for “Un-Central” schools. This is not good for the future of our children and our Nation. We hear incidents that some students in Central schools (e.g. Punakha Central School) sent their quilts, blankets and mattress back home reluctantly because the Government of the day provides “everything” for them free even when they do not need them. Sadly, we also hear incidents that some students in “Un-Central” schools (e.g. Rangtse Primary School) are begging for their quilts, blankets and mattress from elsewhere to fight through cold winter as the Government of the day provides “nothing” for them for free even when they desperately need them. This is a case of misplaced priority, wrong allocation of our country’s scarce resources and attention discrimination. Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa, while appreciating what the Government is doing to build Central schools for better future of most students, would like to urge to give priority attention to the needy students in “UnCentral” schools with URGENCY before the harsh winter sets in.
