Nepal Education: Pitch for Protection of Old Schools, Object to Upcoming

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.

The National Campaign for Education (NCE) is a network of civil society organizations dedicated to enabling right to education and child rights.

In another scenario, Nepal Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Ishwor Pokharel has assured that the Nepal Government will protect old schools.

On the occasion of Shivapuri Secondary School’s 70th Anniversary in Mahargunj, DPM Pokharel said that the old schools are historical heritages because of which they will be protected.

Following are the Government plans discussed by Pokharel at the event:

  • Being actively involved in the betterment of the education sector, the government seeks to address the respective sector’s concerns by increasing investments in community schools
  • Centralizing focus on production of capable human resources to build a strong national economy 

 
Pokharel also adds that education is significant to Nepal Government’s campaign ‘Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepalis’ for the country’s economic development.

Hope that these initiatives manage to tap the right resources and maintain Nepal’s heritage while trying to impart quality education to Nepalis.
