In a bid to improve educational infrastructure and impart quality educational quality, the National Campaign for Education (NCE) of Nepal approached the Nepal Government with a suggestion on October 7, 2018.
The recommendation directs the government to not add any more schools in the country. Furthermore, it demands that the government enhance existing institutions to provision free and mandatory education in accordance with the constitution.
Citing the aforementioned reasons, NCE Network Chair Kumar Bhattarai handed over a draft to the High-level National Education Commission Chair and Nepal Minister for Education, Science & Technology Giriraj Mani Pokharel.
Additionally, it also requested the government to come-up with a policy that aims at gradually diminishing private investment in school education.
