Soon after enrollment information was documented and children began to progress in school, literacy rates became a viable measure of educational reform. Between 1991 and 2009 literacy rates for young people aged 15 to 24 years increased for males from 49.6% to 82% and for females from 32.7% to 76.7 %. Adult literacy rates for the same time period grew from 49.2% to 72% for males and 17.4% to 46.9% for females (UNESCO, 2009). In 1951, only 1% of Nepal’s population was considered literate; however, by 2009 Nepal’s overall literacy rate was estimated at 62.3% (UNESCO, 2009). Whereas Nepal’s literacy rates remain low in comparison to industrialized nations, especially for females, the growing percentage of Nepalese individuals who are able to read, write and understand short, simple, sentences relating to daily life, communicate with others, and perform simple calculations attests to the country’s efforts toward making education available to all.
