Abstract:
A National Symposium on Education and Federalism was held at the Hotel de L’Annapurna in Kathmandu today. The Symposium was organised by the Education and Federalism Support Group(EFSG), a group of local education experts interested in how education will be organised and delivered in a federal system of Government in Nepal. The group was initiated and is supported by UNESCO Office in Kathmandu. The Symposium was attended by over 80 delegates including Constituent Assembly members, Ministry of Education officials, representatives of teacher unions, a range of other stakeholder groups and representatives of development agencies. The purpose of the Symposium was to publicize the work of the EFSG and to promote discussion and gain feedback on how various aspects of Nepal’s education system could be managed in the future. The EFSG has been consulting widely among the education community in Kathmandu and in regional areas on six key areas of interest, exploring issues and receiving suggestions about how they could be managed in a federal system of government.
