The school education system in Nepal consists of primary, lower secondary, secondary and higher secondary education. Starting from Grade one,

1. Primary schools offer five years of education and

2. Lower secondary schools provide further three years of education (6-8).

3. Secondary schools offer two more years of education (9-10) which concludes with the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) Examination.

While higher secondary schools offer two more years of education after SLC. In addition, Early Childhood Development (ECD) /Pre-primary Classes (PPCs) are offered as preparation for Grade one.

Broadly, schools are categorized into two types: community schools (supported by government of Nepal) and institutional schools (supported by parents and trustees) . Community schools have three sub-categories: community-aided (fully supported by the government for teachers‟ salary and other expenses), community-managed (fully supported by the government for teachers‟ salary and other funds but their management responsibility lies with the community) and community-unaided (getting either partial or no support from the government).

The table below gives information regarding salary of teachers which is given by Government of Nepal (Effective from Sharwan, 2073). This salary may not represent the salary of teachers in Boarding schools and other community managed schools.
