Consultancy Service for: Book Development Workshop
Nepal’s formal education system does not have very long history. Until 1950’s there were only 300 schools across the country. Those schools were mostly accessible to elite and wealthy population only. It wasn’t until the early 1970s that expansion of the system to all Nepalese became part a central government policy objective. Following the peace agreement of 2007, a school sector reform plan was implemented and guided significant developments in the education sector over the second half of the MDG period. This period increased access and equity of education provision, increasing investment in the sector and enhancing data on system performance and social inclusion. However, the Joint Evaluation of Nepal’s School Sector Reform Program 2009-16 highlighted an overall finding that the poor quality of education still produces school-leavers who have not acquired the necessary competencies to improve their economic situation. The evaluation identifies a number of issues like low level of teacher development and absenteeism, weak supervision and pedagogical advice to teachers and gaps achieving minimum enabling conditions as contributing factors to this.
The newly agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s 2016-2030) has a dedicated goal for education which emphasizes the need to improve quality of children’s learning outcomes. Globally, 250 million children currently in school are not learning the basic foundational literacy and numeracy skills. This is also the case in Nepal where only one in four children studying in grade three can read their grade level text with fluency and comprehension. Experience and research from within Nepal’s education sector indicate that one of the biggest contributing factors in this situation are classroom teaching and learning practices.
Nepali language is the mother tongue for less than half (44.6 per cent) of the total population but the educational activities performed in school and classroom is predominantly in Nepali language. Providing education in the mother tongue is very important to ensure the learning opportunities for children who do not use, or have difficulty in speaking Nepali. The Constitution of Nepal has ensured the right for each community to conduct teaching learning activities of primary level in the students’ mother tongue
