Vox pop: Education and the Youth

What is in our education system is to blame for the extreme brain drain occurring in our country?

According to UNICEF, Nepal has made substantial educational improvement over the previous 20 years. In primary schools, the net enrolment percentage has grown to 97 percent. However, the country still faces numerous obstacles. Sub-standard education standards and lack of readily available-easy access to material/facilities, geographical isolation, gender, and socioeconomic and ethnic disparities are all issues that persist in the education sphere of our nation. Poverty, social marginalization, disability, migration, child labor, social norms, and gender discrimination are all major impediments to enrollment and attendance.

Our education system hasn't changed; everything remains the same. All of the books and the syllabus are the same as they were many years ago. Many schools are more theoretical than practical. Practical education schools are significantly more expensive. I believe that Nepal's entire educational system is flawed and that some teachers are unaware of proper teaching methods, while others continue to teach in traditional ways. Teachers are supposed to be second parents and students are there to learn from their mistakes, so students should have the freedom to make mistakes. Some students continue to be bullied by their teachers. The entire educational system is corrupted, and the rights that students should have are only found in books, not in reality.

Nepal's educational system is poorly managed. Many villages lack access to education, and even in cities, schools are not properly organized. School plays an important role in developing better manpower for the country, but some schools are focused only on the books. Having a single school with a proper education system is preferable to having tons of schools. Every rural area of a country should have schools and high schools. Education sectors should place greater emphasis on children's career development and provide a variety of study faculties from which students can choose based on their interests. Teachers should be qualified and well-versed ineffective teaching methods. I don't believe any school or high school has counselors available for students to talk to about their problems. I believe that having a counselor can help with a variety of mental health issues.

It focuses more on theory than practice, and not everyone shares the same interests. However, we cannot pick and choose which courses we are interested in, Thus we are compelled to embrace them despite our lack of enthusiasm. Students in rural areas should have access to similar educational opportunities; at the very least, students' basic needs should be met. Education should not be viewed as a business or a political arena in which to cast votes. Employment opportunities should be provided in accordance with a student's level of education, and important exams should be taken into account, because taking exams is becoming easier, and those students who do well in class are being overlooked, while those who get good grades through sloppy practice are being given opportunities, resulting in a significant drop in educational standards.

In our country, there are schools for people of various economic backgrounds. Government schools have no idea how to build a good education system or how to improve students, and private schools are insanely expensive. Many young people are going abroad for higher education as a result of the poor educational system. But this is only possible for the wealthy students; those who cannot afford it must drop out even if they don’t want to. Our government has no idea that there are so many talented students who are not getting the chance to show how extraordinary they are.
