Graft threatens Nepal education reform

Activists say programme to overhaul education is flawed and open to corruption.

    Nepal is implementing an ambitious programme to reform its education sector, but rights activists say the scheme is deeply flawed, and open to corruption.

    Teachers say the entire education system needs to be overhauled to meet international standards.

    Nepal Institutional School Teachers Union said the present education system had to be changed for it could not bring any meaningful improvement.

    Teachers claim that the education sector had been put on the back burner and it is riddled with corruption.
