Liberal class upgrading policy responsible for poor result

According to a report, students from the public schools have failed Mathematics, English, and Science while students have failed in Social Studies and Nepali from the private schools.
Educationist Bidyanath Koirala said the teachers have been patronized under the protection of the political parties and the students were guided by the trend that with the thinking that nothing can be gained from learning at school and the poor result was its consequence.
Koirala further argued that there would be no increase on the pass percentage unless the political parties were made responsible in this regard, adding that the teachers concentrated their minds to other matters rather than teaching. 
Poor SLC result could be the consequence of the liberal class promotion policy and that the government would bring new policies to improve the SLC result, said Spokesperson of the MoE, Mahashram Sharma.
Chairman of the PABSON Dr. Baburam Pokhrel and former Chairman, Umesh Shrestha, opined that it is impossible to bring changes in the academic results unless the schools were freed from political interference.
