Education and welfare

There are three main types of secondary schools in Nepal: community schools, institutional schools, and higher secondary schools. Community schools are usually run by the government or a community. Institutional schools are often referred to as ‘private’ schools. Both community schools and institutional schools cater to primary and lower secondary students, whereas only higher secondary schools provide education at the higher secondary level.

Diploma courses of three years, equivalent to higher secondary education, are also offered by colleges under the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT). Colleges also offer SLC-level certificate programs of between one and two years.

Out of the total literate population of 2014, 39% have primary education, 20 % have lower secondary education, 10.2 % have secondary education, 10.2% have higher education, and non-formally educated literate are at 4.2 %. The take-away is clear. There is a much greater participation in primary and secondary education than higher education. In Nepal there are 34,837 schools, 3,656 Higher Secondary schools and 1,369 colleges. 

Education sector has been in a booming stage. More people are interested to invest in education ranging from primary to the higher education level.These factors make some of the education institutions with weaker planning and resources vulnerable and prone  to big losses.
