Boby Joseph Thadathil SJ

Abstract: Natural disasters have significant impact on education. This is a descriptive study to assess the extent of damage, managerial issues and remedies and reconstruction of rural schools badly affected by the 2015 Nepal earthquakes. Headmasters of nineteen schools from 4 of the worst affected districts were selected and interviewed on a one to one basis with a structured questionnaire. The problems faced in the immediate post disaster period, sources of immediate help, remedial measures for losses were recorded. The infrastructure available before the earthquake and the details of construction of temporary structures were recorded. The study gives a snapshot into the ground realities faced by rural schools in developing countries in wake of a massive natural calamity.
