Girls outdo boys
Aug 6, 2016-
A study by the Education Review Office (ERO) may have found learning achievement of students to be poor, but when it comes to girl students, their performance was comparatively better, “which is quite an encouraging sign”, said ERO Director Lekhnath Poudel on Friday.
“We have seen quite an improvement in the performance of girl students,” said Poudel. “Girl students of Grade III and Grade V have outdone boys this time,” added Poudel.
Average learning achievement of girl students of Grade III in Nepali has been found to be 54 percent whereas it is 51 percent among boys. For fifth graders, girls’ learning achievement in Maths is 50pc compared to 48pc among boys. (PR)
