Planning the Location of Schools: The District of Kaski, Nepal. Case Studies -- 4.
McCabe, James; Padhye, N. R.
The District of Kaski in central Nepal is analyzed as part of a series of case studies on the application of the school mapping technique. The District of Kaski is placed in the Nepalese context of location, economic and social development, and education. A retrospective analysis is made of the first- and second-level networks from 1966-67 to 1970-71. Enrollment growth, participation and flow rates, origin of pupils, characteristics of school buildings and costs are comparatively analyzed by area. A brief examination of the economic and social background of the district and regional strategy for development is undertaken and a demographic analysis and population forecast is also given. Two schemes for the development of the school network are prepared, compared, and illustrated on maps. An assessment of teacher requirements and a comparative costing of the proposals are also included. The main conclusions of the case study are summarized in the final chapter. (Author/MLF)
