Status of Female Teachers In Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.02 MB | Download   
This study originated from a desire to know the status of female teachers in Nepal. The primary objective of the study is to describe and analyze the existing status of female teachers. It was undertaken in the backdrop of a situation where there was lack of information on the status of female teachers. Being an exploratory study, it covers a wide range of issues involving female teachers: demographic and professional characteristics, household dynamics and household characteristics, attitudes toward teaching profession, work and the working environment, gender environment in schools, perceptions of different stakeholders about female teachers, barriers that prevent women from joining teaching and from serving in rural and remote locations, teacher attitudes toward boys and girls as learners, etc. As the government of Nepal is striving to increase the number of female teachers in schools, it is hoped that the information gathered from the study will provide inputs to formulate and implement policies, plans and programs to enhance the status of female teachers. The study was funded by UNESCO Kathmandu Office.
The study is based mainly on primary data collected through an extensive field survey. The study is limited to the public schools, now officially defined as community schools. The sample consisted of 10 districts representing the various regions. It comprises samples of 106 schools, 335 female teachers, 318 male teachers, 106 head teachers and 653 students. The study gathered and used both qualitative and quantitative information. To this end, six different sets of instruments were developed and used. As such, this is not a comparative study between male and female teachers. But, where data is available, the status of female teachers is examined and analyzed in relation to the male teachers. Focus group discussions were held with various groups of respondents to gather qualitative information.
