After extreme politics and a lack of responsiveness, community schools have started to become aware of the problem. There has been a struggle between schools to enhance quality and learning in the previous several years. Students have been actively recruited, and instructors have been retained in the classroom through a variety of methods. New ideas have been developed and implemented.
“Due to the school area development plan, classrooms have seen a lot of improvement,” stated Neelkanth Dhakal, Director of Education and Human Resources Development Center. From the financial year 2073/74, teachers have become responsible and accountable. The School Education Sector Plan (SESP) was implemented as a new plan in the last financial year, once the time period of this plan had passed.
Nepal’s government plans to spend $6.46 billion over the next five years on SSDP, which accounts for 88.8 percent of its expenditure. Teachers, principals, and school management committee members are aware that the school will not survive nor will the kids be seen in the classroom if new plans for improvement are not presented. When the number of pupils in a school has dropped below a certain threshold, the government has implemented a program to combine schools.
“We have delegated responsibility to the community and class teachers with the distribution of work,” said Krishna Prasad Acharya, headmaster of Vindhyavasini Secondary School in Batulechaur, Pokhara, who succeeded in the performance test conducted by the government. There will be a commitment to improve the school after this.”
A compulsory regulation has been established that the instructor must explicitly write the topic, purpose, and substance in the log book when entering the classroom. Every year, the parents’ houses are visited and the school is improved based on their suggestions, which are given in a two-page questionnaire with a minimum 15 questions. Because the teachers may stay up late while the design is being planned, a bedroom has been prepared for them to stay the night in school.
Mejakan Pokharel, the head of education for Machhapuchhre Rural Municipality in Kaski, stated that an educational calendar has been established to ensure educational uniformity, the greatest teachers and pupils are recognized, homework diaries are issued to each pupil, tests are given at the same time and results are published at the same time. Clocks have been put in every classroom.
The community has got more concerned with the rule that all pupils must be educated in this school, referring to Santosh Acharya, the headmaster of that school. A projector is available in each classroom. For the examination committee, teachers are not permitted to submit written questionnaires. “We gather parents at least 12 times a year,” he said, referring to the relationship between information technology and education. Parents influence our decisions.
