Education in Nepal

Nepal is a very interesting country from a democratic point of view. The country received its first democratic constitution in 1959, but the year after their king dissolved the parliament. After hard struggle, the democratic movement succeeded in 1990 to force through a new democratic constitution, where the king's absolute power was cut down. Hence, Nepal is a young democracy and we think that it is very interesting to see if this can be seen in classroom work. We firmly believe that this study will be a great asset for us as future teachers. Since Sweden nowadays is a multicultural society, it is important for us as teachers to develop knowledge and respect for other cultures. Also, when we now have returned to Sweden we think it is very important for us to share this knowledge with our fellow student teachers, future pupils and colleagues.

Nepal is a small mountainous country, 1/3 of the area of Sweden. The country is squeezed in between the two powerful countries India and China. Nepal is divided into three geographical zones. In the south, there is the lowland area, the Terai, where most of the agriculture takes place. The climate in the Terai is tropical, and there is a rich wild-life with, for example, elephants, tigers, rhinos and crocodiles. In the central part of Nepal, the middle-hill area, is the area where most of the people live. The landscape consists of fruitful hills, where rice often is cultivated in terasses. In the north, is the Himalayan mountain chain with eight of the world's ten highest mountains, and highest of them all is
Mount Everest (Utrikespolitiska institutet, 1998).

Education system in Nepal

The education system in developed country and developing country is totally different. Developing country like Nepal has really bad education system. The countries result and education system is depend upon the aid of ADB or other INGO"S fund.  The result which comes out after 10 years study also depends upon their rules. That means we can say the result doesn't come accoroding to study and writing students do in school. They get passed although they won't write enough. Government can't run school's without foreign aids. So the result of government school aids depens upon these donors rules and regualtion.

Most of text books we are following are more suitable for india.  In school also we are using lots of books from indian writers. In colleges we use text books from india or other countries which was written 10 or 20 years before. The education system and marking systems which we using most of them are out dated.
