Pratham, a well-known Non-Profit Organization, has released the Annual Status of Education Report 2019 on 14th January 2020. The report shared many key insights and interesting observations about the state of education, especially in school-level education in the country.

Key Points:

  • According to the analysis, Pratham’s ASER Report 2019 showcases parents’ choice of school when it comes to the education of their students. 
  • Parents usually prefer private schools for the education of boys while girl students are primarily sent to government schools to get a basic education.
  • It has also been noted that the age group between 4-5 years, around 56.8% of girls enrolled in government schools as compared to only 50.4% of boys. 
  • On the other hand, when it comes to private schools, 49.6% of boys were enrolled in schools as compared to 43.2% of girls in the same age group. 
  • Even in higher age groups, i.e. from 6 to 8 years, some 61.1% girls were enrolled in government schools against 52.1% boys; while the number in private schools hovered at 47.9% boys against 39% girls.

The key recommendations are:

  1. To expand and to strengthen the existing network of Anganwadi Centres.
