35 grade 10th students didn’t reach 11th grade
Yes, that is correct. According to a report by the Ministry of Education, 35 lakh grade 10th students in India did not reach 11th grade in 2022. This is a significant number, and it is important to understand the reasons why these students are dropping out of school.
There are a number of reasons why students might drop out of school. Some of the most common reasons include:
– Financial hardship: Many families in India cannot afford to send their children to school.
– Child labor: Some children are forced to work to support their families, which prevents them from attending school.
– Pregnancy and early marriage: Girls who become pregnant or get married early are often forced to drop out of school.
– Inadequate infrastructure: Many schools in India lack basic infrastructure, such as classrooms, teachers, and textbooks. This can make it difficult for students to learn and can lead to them dropping out of school.
The government is taking steps to address the issue of school dropouts. They have launched a number of programs, such as the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), to provide financial assistance and training to students who want to learn a skill. They have also launched the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) to improve the quality of education in government schools.
However, more needs to be done to address the issue of school dropouts. The government needs to invest more in education and make it more accessible to all children. They also need to address the root causes of school dropouts, such as poverty, child labor, and gender inequality.
If we want to build a better future for India, we need to ensure that all children have access to quality education. We need to work together to make sure that no child is left behind.
