Pedagogy & Architecture: Our Vision to Transform Primary Education in Nepal, Forever
Feb 09, 2018
Since building our first school, Team Diyalo has learned a lot about the state of primary education in rural Nepal — and about what needs to be fixed. Over the past eight months, we have been working tirelessly to formulate a solution to improve the condition of primary education in Nepal. National primary education in rural Nepal is among the worst in the world. Students are taught by rote memorization. Most children in the fourth grade are unable to perform addition with numbers greater than one digit. Fewer than 10% of students who enter the first grade finish the 10th grade and take the school-leaving exams on time.
