Many schools in the Biratnagar Metropolis have started teaching in English medium from the lower class. As a result, private school students are attracted to community schools. Durga Khatiwada, chief of the education division, said that the efforts made in the education sector have become fruitful due to the planned steps. The number of students dropping out of community schools has been declining in the meantime.

Former principal Bishnu Prasad Lamichhane says that Adarsha Secondary School has become an example. In Adarsha, emphasis is laid on teaching Montessori in the lower class and Computer Technology in the upper class. Adarsha ​​currently has about 2,000 students. The number of students is also increasing in Pokhariya Secondary School.

 Mahendra Secondary School of Biratnagar has emphasized on computer education. Principal Chandra Prasad Sah said that, after emphasizing on virtual classes, private schools have been imparting quality and well-equipped infrastructure. "Due to COVID-19, everyone has had a difficult two years, and the recent move to connect students from poor families to technical education has proved to be the right one," he said.

Dinesh Mandal is happy to get education in a government school. "I have always wanted to study Information Technology. It is not possible for me to enroll in private schools due to high fees," he said.

 Chief of the Biratnagar Metropolitan City Bhim Parajuli said that a multi-technical school has been started at the Janata Higher Secondary School premises. He says that the poor have access to technical education. "In five years, we have improved the physical infrastructure of the education sector, even taken initiatives to improve the quality of education. Now the results are beginning to be seen," he said. The school emphasizes inclusive education and conducts Montessori teaching for early childhood development. This has increased the attraction of students, says Parajuli.

 Metropolitan Chief Parajuli has helped build physical infrastructure in two basic schools by handing over his salary. He has been regularly monitoring other basic schools in the city. A new building is being constructed at Pokhariya. In other schools, the metropolis has been assisting in the management of means of transportation.

Chakra Prasad Pokhrel, principal of Sushiksha Nikunj Primary School, Hatkhola, says that the efforts of the metropolis are positive. "It is necessary to match the posts of teachers and staff and meet the demand. Sports materials should also be provided," he said.
