Students seeking admission must abide by certain conditions, in keeping with the orders of the Burmese authorities, he added.
The conditions are: - All students must produce their family registration cards, but students of middle and high schools must produce the Nationality Identity Card (NIC).
If a middle and high school student is unable to produce a NIC, the students have to pay Kyat 6,000 to the new school committee.
The new committee was set by the military junta with one school teacher, an immigration officer, a custom officer and a police officer. They are to check all documents of students, said a teacher in Buthidaung.
For admission, the committee charges a student Kyat 17,000 to maintain the school lawn, keep it clean and green; for the welfare association; students' health, sports activities and admission fees, said Ahmed Amin, father of two students in Maungdaw.
The authorities have ordered the school committee not to take admission fees at the primary level. Primary education will be free of charge. But, primary schools take Kyat 2,000 per student for admission, said Amina Begum, a widow in Shewza village with a child.
The authorities ordered the schools to finish the admission procedure by May 30, but admissions are still going on as students have financial problems in Maungdaw and Buthidaung.
According to a Rohingya farmer, most Rohingya families have two to five children to educate and their families cannot pay the fees at a time to the school committee. "I feel this year most Rohingya students will be not able to take admission in the school.”
