Universalization of primary education (UPE) is one of the major priority goals of all countries in the region of Asia and the Pacific. The developing countries now are engaged extensively in the formulation and implementation of policies, plans, and programs aimed at making adequate and suitable opportunities for primary education available to all children as soon as possible. Lower participation rates of girls in primary education is seen as one of the main obstacles to achieving full universalization of primary education in some of the countries of the region. This volume, one of a series that provides a comparative view of the position of UPE and its progress, focuses on Nepal with particular reference to girls' enrollment and participation in primary education. The seven chapters in this volume include: (1) introduction; (2) enrollment, retention and achievement; (3) provision of school facilities and female teachers; (4) factors affecting educational participation; (5) national policies and their impact on the education of girls; (6) programmes related to the promotion of girls' education; and (7) new plans and strategies. A number of tables displaying data appear throughout this volume. (DB)
