60 Lakh Out of School Children In India

 

The number of out-of-school children in India has declined to 60.6 lakh from 81.5 lakh in 2009 — 2.97 % of all children between 6 and 14, says the Indian Market Research Bureau. Interestingly, there are fewer girls (28.9 lakh) out of school than are boys (31.6 lakh). In fact, girls have consistently done better than boys in all three surveys.

The survey finds a continuing drop in the number of out of school children among SCs and Muslims.
