Challenged by me some months later as to why they were not actively involved in the Government’s land reform movement, they complained that they were understaffed. Visiting primary schools in Eastern Nepal one Monday, we were surprised to find that none of the schools were operating. School after school was closed. It was difficult to find out why, as most of the villagers were out working in the fields. Finally we found a group of parents, and they explained to us that their school had two teachers, in common with most of the schools in the area.
Both would take a long weekend from Saturday to Monday. The parents’ committee had been to the district education office to complain, but were not made to feel welcome, and came away empty handed. Later we questioned the district official, and he agreed that the teachers were expected to teach six days a week, from Sunday to Friday. He admitted sending the parents’ group away, as they were troublemakers. If he accepted the parents’ complaints he would have to sanction those teachers who were not working the days expected of them, which would make him unpopular with his peers.
Schools universally close for national day celebrations, and for extensive preparation for these celebrations. I have even found in one case the school closed for the inspector’s visit! It is not uncommon for the 180 to 210 days to be reduced to around 110 days. This would be bad enough, but since the scheduling of the academic year is not based on the agricultural calendar, children are also often absent. With the first rains the classrooms empty. Combining these factors, the child might only have 80 to 90 days of schooling a year.
