Who Goes to School? Educational Stratification by Gender, Caste, and Ethnicity in Nepal.
Stash, Sharon; Hannum, Emily
Comparative Education Review, v45 n3 p354-78 Aug 2001
Analysis of household survey data in Nepal showed that despite rapid educational expansion during 1965-79, enrollment gaps between boys and girls and among castes did not narrow. The likelihood that girls would enter school was not increased by either high socioeconomic status or urban residence, but once enrolled, girls were as likely as boys to finish primary school. (SV)
