Modern education in Nepal began with the establishment of the first school in 1853; this school was only for the members of the ruling families and their courtiers. Schooling for the general people began only after 1951 when a popular movement ended the autocratic Rana family regime and initiated a democratic system. Since then, there has been a dramatic expansion of education facilities in the country. As a result, adult literacy (age 15+) of the country was reported to be 60.3% (female: 46.3%, male: 73%) in a 2010 population census,[1] up from about 5% in 1952"54. Beginning from about 300 schools and two colleges with about 10,000 students in 1951, there now are 49,000 schools (including higher secondary), 415 colleges, five universities, and two academies of higher studies. Altogether 7.2 million students are enrolled in those schools and colleges who are served by more than 222,000 teachers.

Despite such examples of success, there are problems and challenges. Education management, quality, relevance, and access are some of the critical issues of education in Nepal. Societal disparities based on gender, ethnicity, location, economic class, etc. are yet to be eliminated. Resource crunch has always been a problem in education. These problems have made the goal of education for all a challenge for the country.

Well this is the history of education system in Nepal. Even though, people were deprived of education during the Rana Regime, the condition changed after the regime was dissolved. Even though then at that time the literacy rate of Nepal was not so bad. Those people who can invest were educated and hold a respectable position in the country. I think as far as i know people were more educated during that time than compared to the present one................

Education system in Nepal i growing day by day though it requires major changes. One of the glaring example is that right to education is listed as fundamental right in the Interim Constitution 2007(2063) but several children are deprived from this. There are several reasons behind this and some of them are: high fees of schools and institutions, lack of improvement and betterment of governmental schools and excessive privatization. Schools and education institutions have become moreover a place to earn money. Schools take more fees than they are supposed to take. likewise government schools are not operated properly. They lack basic infrastructures like table, benches, free books, etc. Another thing in Nepalese education system is that we lack practical education. Our education system is based on theoretical based knowledge. If these things are taken into consideration then we can have better and qualified people.

In Nepal, mostly we find the theoretical based education system. While talking about education of Nepal we cannot find that most of the children and in all areas of our Nepal the education cannot cover equally as it has to be. In rural area most of the children are not getting quality education only up to 8 or 7 class we cannot find high education.

When we talk to the central area Kathmandu we can see there are many university colleges and Schools. these school colleges and university have adopted the interdisciplinary approach and theoretical and practical based education being practice in present situation.

While talking about the Law, In our Interim Constitution of Nepal 2063 B.S have secure the Right to education in FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS, but it could not secure the free education system up to primary and undergraduates.

Education Ministry have to think about this to enforce it. It also bring the plan relating to the participatory approach regarding exchange of students in international level to share their knowledge. From which it will motivate the student and encourage in their education field.

There must be one effective executive committee in each district for to evaluate and check and balance the education activities. Which must held the education awareness campaign to make the parents understand the important of the education.

About education we must not forget that education must be:
Available
Accessible
Acceptable
Adaptable
Affordable

If any policy or laws are been made relating the right to education these 5 points must be included for to establishing the effective education system in our Nepal.

Interesting. I know nothing of education in Nepal, so I am informed.

Is education being expanded using traditional methods of teachers and classrooms? Or are their innovations, like vide lectures or even the Internet? (Emerging nations are leaping directly to cell phones, bypassing the wired networks. Any parallel in education?) What languages are used in schools?

Yes, that was the history. During those days there was no education provided to the public. Only the members of the Rana family can get education. Rana's believed that if education is provided to the general people, they become smart and intelligent and people would create voice against them and to their existence. That might be the main reason for the lack of education among people.
But, now the case has changed. Education has become the fundamental right of people and the people have become aware about it. Several government and private schools, colleges and universities has been established. For the awareness of people, Government, NGO's, INGO's is performing several activities and conducting many projects that helps in creating awareness. Hope all these efforts may create the awareness of education in people and may each and every individual in Nepal will be educated in the recent days to come.
