India is currently facing one of the worst educational crises in the world. Over 17.7 million children are out of school. Illiteracy levels are as high as 40% and the foundation to improve these abysmal numbers appear lacking. Classrooms are understaffed. Teachers are not engaged so only 50% are teaching at any given time.
Drop-out rates are unusually high. After starting primary school, 33% of the children drop out before they reach 5th grade! However, the most damning statistic is that although over half of India’s population is 25 years or younger, and approximately 10% of the population is under 5 years, India’s spending on education is just 3.3 percent of its GDP compared to an average 5.8 percent in developed countries.
According to Pratham’s Annual Education Report for rural India, enrollment in at schools is over 96% because of the free mid-day meal, however after three years at school, over 60% of the children still cannot read.
