Free education by law

November 25, 2019 08:29 am

Parliament of Nepal enacted Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act in 2018 to implement Article 31 of the constitution. With this, the country has upheld right to education as an enforceable sacrosanct human right. Unlike erstwhile constitutions, the 2015 charter casts an obligation on the state to ensure free education up to the secondary level (from grade nine to 12) and compulsory and free basic education for up to grade eight.
