Teachers in Nepal commit to quality education
Kathmandu, 7 December 2011 – The teachers of Nepal came together in November to commit to the quality education to their pupils.
Although the enrolment rate in Nepal is 94 per cent only 80 per cent go past grade 5 and only 66 per cent of them reach grade 8. Given this scenario, Ms Singer added, "If we have worked hard to bring more children to school, we need to work even harder to ensure that they stay there and complete their education."

Officials representing University Grant Commission, Kathmandu University, Tribhuwan University, various educational groups, media and Development Partners were also present.
