Kathmandu, December 15th: Minister for Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs, Dhanraj Gurung, has envisioned Nepal as a future “education hub,” aiming to attract international students and curb the outflow of talented youth seeking higher education abroad.

Addressing the opening ceremony of the second International Conference of Private and Boarding Schools Organisation Nepal (PABSON), Minister Gurung urged all stakeholders to prioritize quality education as a key solution to the “brain drain” phenomenon. He emphasized the importance of implementing the newly drafted School Education Bill 2080, currently under parliamentary review, to provide a strong foundation for this transformation.

While acknowledging the vital role of private schools in offering quality education, Minister Gurung encouraged school owners and teachers to continuously strive for improvement and empower their students.

PABSON Chairperson DK Dhungana highlighted the conference’s objective to facilitate discussions on improving classroom quality, fostering leadership development within the education sector, and advocating for positive policy changes.

With over 400 participants, including owners, principals, and teachers from private and community schools, the conference promises to be a platform for fostering collaboration and innovation in the Nepali education landscape. Conference Coordinator Medini Lamichhane stated that 17 dedicated sessions will cover various aspects of educational development.

PABSON General Secretary RB Katwal reiterated the conference’s primary goal of promoting leadership development and driving a collective effort towards enhancing educational quality in Nepal.

This renewed focus on quality and international engagement positions Nepal on a promising path towards becoming a regional education hub, empowering its youth and attracting talent from across the globe.
