Review of Research Literature on Girl's Education in Nepal
PDF File Size: 374 KB | Download   
The main aim of this study was to review the existing research on girls’ education in Nepal. The study examined the role of educational research in policy-making in relation to girls’ education. The review included research reports and evaluation studies exclusively devoted to girls education and/or gender disparity in education. More specifically, the review attempted to accomplish the following objectives: (a) to prepare a profile of studies carried out in Nepal on the topic of girls’ education/gender disparity; (b) to describe the key findings of the research; (c) to identify the areas that have been over or under-researched; (d) to assess the overall quality, validity and reliability of the studies; (e) to examine the soundness of the research findings; (f) to assess the extent to which these findings have been disseminated to and shared with policymakers; (g) to assess the impact of studies on policy-making; and (h) to make recommendations as to how more evidence-based educational policies can be designed and adopted. In recent
years, several studies have been undertaken to examine the extent of girls’ participation in formal education and to identify barriers to schooling. Evaluation studies have been undertaken to evaluate the impact of several interventions on girls’ schooling, the supply of women teachers and gender equality. However, little has been done to systematically document and review these various studies.
