PDF File Size: 734 KB | Download   
In Nepal, girls started taking part in school education of late. And, those who enrolled in schools would usually come from the rich family, high caste community, city centers, district headquarters and road corridors. But with the passage of time, this trend slowly changed and the girls from the disadvantaged communities and locations also started showing up in schools. Thus, most of the girls were first generation school. During the course of educational expansion, girls witnessed both conducive as well as obstructive forces to the promotion of their education. As revealed by the studies carried out so far in the country, only some of the forces were found conducive to girls’ education and most of them were obstructive. To address these problems, these studies have suggested various sociocultural, economic, and educational measures. This study differs from the earlier studies in that it has extensive coverage, balanced focus on both conducive and obstructive forces to the promotion of girls’ education, and developed an action plan to implement the suggested measures to ensure their access to and participation in STE subjects. Many people contributed to bringing this study report in the present form. School authorities provided data about their students and teachers, while head teachers, teachers of science and technology subjects, girls, boys, and parents shared their valuable experiences and views during the field visits. In the district headquarters, the District Education Office authorities helped field
researchers find out the sample schools, collect data and tabulate the information obtained from different sources. Similarly, policy makers, planners, STE related curriculum developers, implementers, and teacher trainers also shared their precious views and experiences. All the people who in one way or another helped generate information for the study deserve our heartfelt thanks.
