Shree Prasad Devkota

However, the access to education in Nepal is not satisfactory. Still about 5 percent of children are out of school where many plans, policies and programs have been formulated and implemented in the name of education in Nepal. If we analyzed among the caste/ethnicity, regions, and religious groups and between gender and class of people, thereremain huge disparities among them in the access to education. The children who are from high caste with sound economy status have higher chances to access to good facilities of education and they have higher chances to employment opportunity in their life whereas the children from low caste with low economy background do not have access to good facilities of education system and do not have high chances of employment opportunity. This scenario has created the social inequality in Nepalese society.
