The students required the director to be dismissed within 24 hours as they were dissatisfied with his school management. Students accused the director of using the school’s budget with no transparency, especially with equipment orders, and spending money on things that were not involved with education.

Around an hour later, officials from The Secondary Educational Service Area Office, summoned executives and representatives of the students for conciliation in a meeting room.
