Public education in Nepal has been transformed since the 1950s by a national initiative to promote school enrolment and build schools. The growth of primary schools has been such that about 91 percent of households have access to a primary school within a walking distance of 30 minutes (CBS, 2004). In terms of infrastructure, there are 34,000 primary schools (Grades 1–5), 12,000 lower secondary schools (Grades 6–8), 4,000 secondary schools (Grades 9–10), and 1,500 higher secondary schools (Grades 11–12). The net enrolment rate (NER) for primary education has reached 89.1 percent, and the adult literacy rate is 52 percent (NPC, 2007b). The success rate for completion of national-level testing at the secondary level has doubled in the past five years, climbing from 32 percent to 64 percent. Inclusive policies promote and facilitate equal access to education for all. Disadvantaged children, girls and children with disabilities are encouraged to attend school. To this end, incentive programmes have been launched, including scholarships for Dalits (so-called “untouchables”) and for girls, with an additional incentive that provides cooking oil to families of girl students who live in remote areas. These programmes are motivating parents to send their children to schools. Moreover, the expansion of non-formal educational opportunities has engendered educational benefits for educationally deprived children, adolescents and adults.
