Education Remains Under Attack In Nepal Says UNESCO Report
PDF File Size: 26 KB | Download   
Attacks on teachers and students continue to be a matter of grave concern in
Nepal, says a report entitled “Education under Attack 2010” that was launched by
UNESCO on 10 February at United Nations Headquarters in New York. In Nepal, after the 2006 peace agreement, attacks on education continued particularly in the Terai region, but were harder to track because they were being carried out by smaller, less visible armed groups, stresses the report. Since November 2006, the number of teachers and students abducted dropped dramatically, but the combined number of teachers and students killed continued at similar rates as during the conflict. In other words, despite a fall in abductions, the killings have continued at similar rates to those during the 11-year civil war, when on average 13 teachers and 31 students were killed each year. The study also reveals that political movements linked to armed groups have tried to implement political programmes in schools that could be a prelude to indoctrination and recruitment of child combatants.
