New Figures on Nepal’s Education Achievements in Education for All Global Monitoring Report 2011
PDF File Size: 22 KB | Download   
Nepal has made significant improvements in terms of enrollment at all levels of education, according to the Education for All Global Monitoring Report 2011. For example, the number of children enrolled in primary education increased by 1.2 million between 1999 and 2008. However, the report also states that the high dropout rate of 38 per cent affects the gains in enrollment. As far is adult literacy is concerned, the report warns that Nepal is among those
countries that are likely to miss the goal of halving the number of women and
men who cannot read and write by 2015. Although Nepal achieved an adult
literacy rate of 58 per cent in 2008, which represents a 25 point increase since 1994, the country had nearly 7.6 million illiterate adults in 2008 and needs to intensify its efforts to ensure universal literacy. But as the report also indicates, the world in general is not on track to achieve the goal of literacy for all by 2015. The situation is particularly worrying in South and
West Asia, where the literacy rate stood in 2008 at only 62 per cent compared to the global literacy rate of 83 per cent. Out of a total 796 million illiterate adults, South and West Asia is home to 412 million illiterate adults, 63 per cent of them being women. The Education for All Global Monitoring Report 2011 titled: “The hidden crisis: Armed conflict and education,” tracks progress and achievements of more than 200 countries and territories across the world with respect to all six goals of Education for All. These are related to early childhood care and education, universal primary/basic education, youth and adult learning needs, adult literacy,
gender parity and equality in education and quality of education.
