India reduces ‘out of school’ children by over 90%: UNESCO Report

UNESCO recently released its global education report, which states that India has reduced its \"out of school\" children by over 90 per cent.

As per a UNESCO global education report released yesterday, making significant progress, India has reduced its "out of school" children by over 90 per cent and has achieved "universal primary education". The report, released by HRD Minister Smriti Irani, said that India is predicted to be the only country in South and West Asia to have an equal ratio of girls to boys in both primary and secondary education.

According to the Education for All 2000-2015 report, globally 47 per cent of the countries achieved universal pre-primary enrolment, eight per cent of the countries including India were close to achieving so. The report, though, called upon the international community to find, in partnership with countries, the means to bridge the $22 billion annual financial gap for quality pre-primary and basic education for all by 2030.

While addressing the meet, Irani said the initiatives to improve the enrolment level and "a new paradigm of education that fosters knowledge, analytical skills, vertical reasoning and the ability to imagine beyond the given is being adopted". This is being carried out recognising the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of making education a pillar in nation's character building, she said, adding enhanced focus was being laid on science and mathematics which are central to school education.

The UNESCO report also noted the achievement of gender parity in India but said the country is yet to achieve significant progress in adult literacy. It said 32 per cent of the countries including India are still "very far" from achieving it. The report called upon all the countries to ensure that children and adolescents complete pre-primary, primary and lower secondary education by 2030.
