In Nepal, teaching and learning reading in the early grades remains a significant challenge,with most primary school students unable to read at grade level. Although enrollment in public schools is high, drop-out and grade repetition are common-place. Teachers often resort to rote instruction methods, resulting in memorization rather than actual reading. World Education and its partners are working to strengthen early grade reading in the weakest public schools through learning assessments, teacher training, and the introduction of grade-appropriate reading materials and activities for early learners.
