The meeting was called in the light of the deterioration of student behavior in Bhutan and the deep concern expressed by His Majesty to both the faculty as well as the Parent Reps during  separate audiences earlier this year.

While no specific instructions were given, the committee felt the need to define the problems carefully, come up with well-considered solutions and then submit the recommendations.

A very positive meeting followed with active participation from the members.  A discussion on a wide ranging issues helped provide a clear picture on the situation among Bhutanese students. The meeting ended with the resolution for all members to prepare recommendations for discussion and adoption in the next meeting. The final document shall be compiled and submitted.
