Self-Entrepreneurship and Education in Private School: An Integrity Perspective

Shanta Maharjan, Prem Prasad Sigdel


The contribution of private sector in development is highly lauded by the experts in this era. It stands as a backbone of all the capitalistic economy. In other words, it is also the symbol of liberalized economy in which private participation is becoming necessary. In the context of Nepal, schools are running by private sectors and they are practicing the concept of liberalized economy as counterparts of public schools. They take it as service business and the government is getting much benefit with good pass percentage from these schools. In this way, private involvement is deemed necessary for the development of education.  The involvement of private entrepreneur generates good result from exam or quality education perspective. It is possible when self-employment is promoted from 2036 BS (1979 AD) in school sector. Thus, this paper highlights the importance of self-entrepreneurship in school sector in spite of the blame of commercialization of education. However, the private schools in Nepal have been operating like business houses. They practice negative aspects of education like unfair advertisements; the teachers are underpaid; they sell different goods from schools like copies, tie, belt; they force guardians to pay more in the name of fees like: admission, monthly fee; extra fees; as a whole they challenge the concept of service business ignoring the aspect of quality education. Hence they practice integrity in negative perspective as a whole.

Keywords: self-entrepreneurship, private school, integrity, education, development.
