PDF File Size: 46 KB | Download   
Education experts from the South Asia region are meeting this week in Kathmandu to discuss and determine what it takes to make schools child friendly in effort to provide a quality education for all girls and boys. The four-day workshop is part of the Global Capacity Development Programme on Child Friendly Schools (CFS), developed by the UNICEF Education section in New York, that is being rolled out in all regions around the globe. Former UNICEF Deputy Executive Director Kul Gautam made opening remarks, calling for countries to fulfill their commitments in providing a quality education for all children by integrating the child-friendly school approach in their education plans and policies.The programme builds on investments and global commitments that governments have already made to achieve education goals, including the establishment of quality standards. The regional workshops are a major step in assisting governments to strengthen national capacity in creating child-friendly standards. Throughout the week experts will deliberate on the importance of child-centered classroom practices and school environments that are safe and protective of children and that promote learning. Participants will also discuss schools as a learning community including creating school ethos, links between schools and the communities they serve as well as overall role of government in facilitating quality standards through proper planning and budgeting.
