At least 48 of every 100 students in India pursuing secondary education never go beyond that level, the World Bank pointing out that the country was doing worse than Vietnam and Bangladesh in enrolling students in secondary education.
“Thirty seven percent students fail before the final examination and 11 percent drop out during the period (class 9 - 12),” the World Bank study released said.
It said with “larger numbers of India’s children now finishing primary school, the demand for secondary schooling is growing. Over the next decade, the number of secondary school students is expected to increase from 40 to 60 million”.
“An increasing share of these students will come from rural and lower Income groups, who will be less able to afford private secondary education,” the bank said.
The bank said that in India, the maximum job growth in recent years has taken place in the skilled services and manufacturing sectors. The Country, therefore, needs to provide the 12 million young people who join the labour force every year with the necessary knowledge, skills, attitudes and experiences to enable them to access these better-paying jobs.
