A giant leap for education
MAY 16 -

As the Rana autocracy, which ruled the country for over a century till 1950, was totally against educating the general public, formal education has a short history in Nepal when compared to many other countries in the world.

By 1951, there were only 310 primary and middle schools and 11 high schools and two colleges in the country. It however, still did not have a university then and the students numbered around 10,000. After the Rana regime was thrown out, efforts were made to make education accessible to the general public and in the next three decades the country had three universities, 65 colleges, around 15,000 schools and over 2.5 million students.

Kantipur-Hissan fair starts today
KATHMANDU, MAY 16 -

Once students pass their School Leaving Certificate and their Plus Two examinations, the perpetual questions that arises are: what course of study to pursue next and where. This year, around a million students from across the country have passed grades 10 and 12 and are actively looking for avenues to pursue further education .

The selection of the right college and subject is of utmost importance to students as their college education will lay the foundation for their careers. While students might not end up pursuing the subject they study in college, it can allow them the option to branch out into related fields and even help them decide if they don’t want to study that subject at all. In order to provide a proper platform for students and their parents to select the most suitable subjects and colleges, Kantipur Publications and the Higher Secondary Schools’ Association (HISSAN) are jointly organising an education fair.

Nepal expands school technology programme
Unlike their urban school peers, Nepal rural school students lack computers, internet service and in many cases, reliable electricity.

And still it is not enough. We have thousands of students immigrating every year to other countries to study and work.

Not that it is all for study purposes but who knows, they might stay in the country and do something about it instead of running off.
