Status of Elementary Education in India

Bupinder Zutshi (Author) Ramakant Rai (Author)

The study critically examines the current scenario of Elementary Education in the backdrop of promulgation of Right to Elementary Education. The study identifies the gaps in the process of evolving appropriate environment for quality elementary education covering all issues like financial requirements, governance, community participation, infrastructure, school enrolment and inclusive education programmes covering all marginalized communities. This study has relevance as the Right of children to free and compulsory education is being finalized and notified in the states. It is high time to take stock of the status of elementary education especially in Hindi speaking states in comparison to better performing states in elementary education. We hope the study will prove to be a useful tool for campaigners of right to education movement, academicians, political leaders researchers and other stakeholder who are working towards Education for All by 2015.
