KATHMANDU, Feb 4: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) is all set to intensify the enforcement of local curriculum from the upcoming academic session.
All public community and institutional schools are required to follow the directives in this regard enforced by the KMC. The local curriculum introduced to keep up with the newly introduced federal system includes various five subjects including Nepal Bhasa, sustainable development, environment education, traffic management, culture of Kathmandu and ancient language.
The KMC's move follows the handover of the authority of overall school management to the concerned local levels under the federal setup. The new curriculum is needed as earlier set of courses being centre-based could not accommodate concerns of various aspects of local level, said Sitaram Koirala, chief of education department at the KMC.
Of the five subjects, a school is required to select one.
