Emerging? Only 58 In 1000 Children Above 15 Make It To College In India

October 1, 2011 7:26 pm

Very disappointing numbers for an emerging economy – we spotted this today:

  • 327 out of every 1000 Indians above the age of 15 have never had any formal schooling
    Of the remaining 673, only 20 dropped out during primary school. Once we got kids into primary school, we managed to make sure that they completed it.
    In secondary school, however, the situation is markedly different. 465 out of every 1000 Indians made it to secondary school but 394 dropped out without completing.
    Only 58 made it to college out of which a little more than half graduated with a degree.
