Educators and Education at a Crossroad in Bhutan

Publikation: ForskningPaper uden forlag/tidsskrift

Abstrakt

This paper discusses the much contested issue regarding the social status and work conditions of educators and asks whether decline is inevitable or can be reversed. It also touches on the paradox or the contrast between GNH and the government provision of free education and health to the population. In theory it would enhance equity in the country but the factual evidence shows exactly the opposite that inequality and uneven development is increasing. If this trend continues it may undermine the goals and objectives of GNH and indeed threaten the future stability in the country.
