The number of drop outs in secondary schools is more than 17 per cent

It is ironic that some children still have to leave their studies in middle school due to the financial constraints in the country. This shocking revelation was made in a government report. According to the report, the number of dropouts in secondary schools is more than 17 per cent, with 1.8 per cent of upper primary (6th to 8th) and 1.5 per cent of children in primary schools (classes one to five) left out. Must be forced.

The dropout rate for boys is high
The report notes that the dropout rate for secondary-level boys is higher compared to the primary level. According to the Unified District Information System 2019-20 report for Education Plus, about 30 percent of children are unable to pass secondary to senior secondary. By comparison, over 90 per cent of children in Punjab, Manipur and Kerala have managed to progress beyond the secondary stage. On the other hand, the drop-out rate of girls in the secondary level is very low compared to boys. In Punjab, the drop rate for girls is zero while in Assam the drop rate for girls is 35.2.

A dropout rate of more than 30 per cent in four states
According to the report, 19 states have a higher dropout rate than the rest of the country. States with a dropout rate of more than 25 per cent in the secondary stage are Tripura, Sikkim, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Madhya Pradesh, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. There are four states in the country and the dropout rate in secondary schools is over 30 per cent.

The dropout rate in Delhi is over 20 per cent
According to the report, the dropout rate is very high even in metro cities like Delhi. In Delhi, more than 20 per cent of children drop out in the middle of their studies in secondary schools. Chandigarh, Kerala, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu and Manipur account for only 1.5 per cent of all children.
