Primary Education and Dropout in Nepal
Devkota, Shree Prasad; Bagale, Shiba
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n4 p153-157 2015
This article tries to highlight the dropout rate of primary education of Nepal. The main essence of the article is to explore the situation of dropout of primary education. There are several programs and policies to reduce the dropout, out of the school children and so on but still there are several issues that are left behind. Educational budget has also increased but still the economic status, family background, access and equity, quality degeneration, lack of school community relationship, public-private dichotomy are some of the reasons behind dropout. With different plans and policies like MDG, EFA, SSRP are for the fulfillment of the free and compulsory primary education but this study reveals that still there are problems in fulfilling the targets and it's difficult to meet the targets within the certain time. The unreached, marginalized, socially excluded groups are among the dropout. So the ways out are also provided within this article which will be helpful for the education actors.
