Student views on Education System of Nepal
About Student views on Education System of Nepal
Until recent years, Nepal has followed a three-tier education system, 12 years of school education, 4 years of college education and 2 for the master's program. Due to the current political situation of the country, lack of good governance and carelessness of policy makers, our education system is of poor quality, especially in the public sectors. The current scenario of higher education doesn't depict a clear road map for the personal development of the students & the development of the country. So the time has come to update our education with latest technology and learning procedure in order to produce globally competent human resources.
The most important thing that has to be improved is the syllabus which should be focused on fundamental understanding of the subject matter & increase critical thinking and problem abilities of the students. Classroom-based education should be replaced by field based and practical based system. Instead of paper based examinations, quality evaluation techniques should be applied. There is a direct relationship between education and sustainable development, so government should invest more in education and it should be prioritized.

What is education? Let us just first know the literal meaning of it. “Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.”
I and many of us only think that education is through teaching. But teaching is only one dimension for educating someone. Where are storytelling, training and other?
These all dimensions should be carried out or say implemented simultaneously. You go to school listening to your teacher or instructors, do their work and then return home. We are perceiving education by only this means. We are not awakened. Please wake up, the major part of education technology is not enforced properly. Hence, I say we should give equal weight to research, training, and storytelling and most important are educating yourself by you.
In the 21st Century, education is the fundamental need for all. Education system should be task oriented, not only the theory education but should be practical as well, for example, if I have the knowledge of Digital Logic, I am able to make electronic torch. I mean this sort of knowledge directly sales at market, the individual survive with self-dependent skills, and same as this each and every people have different skills in different sectors. Here we can create better job inside the country then the outcome would be make our country great independent. To improvement education system the policy maker must be a Ph.D. holder on Education Policy Management System. Staff recruitment process shouldn’t be based on political process and emphasis on knowledge, skills, and expertise.

Nepal has a formal education structure. A primary school has an official entry age of 5 and duration of 5 grades, secondary which consists of grades 6-12 is further divided into 3 levels: lower secondary (grades 6-8), secondary (grades 9 & 10) and higher secondary (grades 11 & 12). Also, further high levels have been well established at present which includes bachelor level, master’s degree.
The education system in Nepal has been well developed in the urban areas whereas in remote areas still, we need to put lots of effort for the improvement of education.
The term education policy means the principles and government policy-making in the educational sphere as well as the collection of laws and rules that govern the operation of education systems.
Policies like quality in education, research-oriented education system, education that will produce manpower competent enough to manage in the international scenario, introducing the use of science and technology in teaching methods are the principal policies that are needed to be introduced in our education system.
The quality of education in a country determines the quality of human resources in that country. Along with the previous education policies, the school size, class size, teaching methods, education to every single citizen of the country without the discrimination in gender, caste, religion, status, school infrastructure are also to be included in the policies for the improvement of the education system

Regarding self, as a part of an innovative society, each bud of flower should have equal rights to bloom, flourish and spread. No flower should be limited within a tiny pot but should get enough of wide premises with no any boundaries for the curiosity. Following the history of education policy in Nepal, we have been involved much unto the theories and certificates of higher grades. No one ever gets an opportunity to acknowledge the learning within the self. The process of learning should be interesting, practical-based and skills oriented rather than the bundles of words forcefully been set into the tender minds. Peaceful environment using latest teaching materials preferably online-based: E-books/library, The PowerPoint presentation and the Art of visualizing are the valuable assets for the betterment. All possible ideas and technologies should be united to create a renewable education source. Our wide concern should be more focused on creativity and the goals to make every student a lifelong learner with strong basic academic qualification. Environment and the people should be the platform to explore the authenticity of knowledge gaining. No students should ever be tortured to secure good marks but we should more emphasis on their will power and inner desire. At last but not the least, Einstein knows it better 'Everyone is born a genius but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, you will live your whole life believing it's stupid.'
