Secondary education

323.The secondary school system is as diverse as the primary system except that NGOs are not involved in the same scale. More than 98 percent secondary schools are private; however, the Government pays 90 percent of teacher and staff salary of these institutions. The number of student in secondary school education is about 7.90 million, of whom over 53 percent are female. At secondary level the rate of student to teacher is 40:1. There are several secondary education programmes undertaken by Government. Secondary Education Sector Improvement Project (SEISP), 1999-2005, has attempting to provide policy support, decentralise and strengthen sector management, privatise textbook production, reform the examination process, improve teacher education, strengthen school management, and improve school assets in underserved areas. The recent Teaching Quality Improvement Project in secondary education is attempting to improve the teachers’ training colleges and in-service training. It also seeks to ensure that teachers from remote rural areas have equitable access to the project.
