Kathmandu,2 Feb 2015 : The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Nepal has prepared Inclusive Advocacy Resource Guidelines for imparting training to teachers in collaboration with the education department of the Tribhuvan University.
The Guidelines aim at providing orientation to the teachers working at the community schools of the country in terms of inclusivity, said Dr Min Bahadur Bista, educationist at UNESCO Bangkok.
“The teachers have a chief role to play in reform of the education so it must be localized and implemented,” Bista said.
Kathmandu’s education chief Tapraj Pant said preparations were afloat to implement the guidelines after meticulous discussion with concerned government bodies and stakeholders.
Educationist Dr Basudev Kafle said during the discussion over the draft it was revealed that the country’s teacher and teaching materials were not compatible to inclusiveness as compared to the other South Asian countries.
Education Department’s Director Dev Kumari Guragain said that the government body was ready to implement the guidelines after discussion with the concerned stakeholders.
