Emerging? Only 58 In 1000 Children Above 15 Make It To College In IndiaOctober 1, 2011 7:26 pm
Very disappointing numbers for an emerging economy – we spotted this today:
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.
