Education for All 2000-2015 Achievements and Remaining Challenges in Nepal: A Brief Summary
PDF File Size: 1.92 MB | Download   
In 2000, representatives of governments from 164 countries, international organizations, donor agencies and non-governmental actors adopted at the World Education Forum on Education for All (EFA) the Dakar Framework for Action, comprising 6 goals to be achieved by 2015.This summary presents the accomplishments, as well as the remaining challenges of Nepal to reach the national targets, set to achieve the vision of providing Education for All.In 2014/15, 77.7 % of 4 year olds were enrolled in ECCE. Considering the fact that this is seven times more than in 2000, the target defined by Nepal of 80% enrolment is likely to be reached. However, the targeted Pupil Teacher Ratio (PTR) of 1:20 to 1:25, to ensure high quality ECCE, will most likely be missed. The access to primary schools in Nepal has increased significantly, as the number of schools expanded and children benefit from shorter traveling times which reflects in significantly improved intake and enrolment rates. The internal efficiency of primary education however is unsatisfactory.
