  4. 4. Play School and Pre School Education Present Status 1 • Lack of any regulatory mechanism for Play School – Pre School Segment 2 • Population under the age group of 2-6 years is 10-11 Cr ( 9 -10 %) • Gross Enrolment Rate (GER) in pre-school segment is as low as 18% @ Current Trends • Rising awareness about the significance of early education for child development and maintaining high enrolment and retention rates in primary education • Majority of the Play School and Pre School market is concentrated in Urban Areas Market Size and Players • Organised pre school market is dominated by private players a few of them are Kidzee, Eurokids, Treehouse • The current urban market size is estimated to be Rs 6000 Cr @ at government pre schools` Source : Fortress Team Research
  5. 5. Elementary Education (Std I-VIII) Present Status The Positives …… • Participation: Rapid improvement in enrollment 2 rates, at least in primary schools • Equity: Social disparity which was very high till 90’s has been reduced significantly. 3 Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) gets most of the credit for the improvements in Elementary Education The Problem Areas …….. 4 • Drop out rates : 48 % in elementary Education (std I- VIII) mainly because of socio-economic reasons • Regional disparity: States like Bihar, UP are way behind in terms of GER, Drop outs.. ( Cont..)
  6. 6. The Problem Areas ……. ( Cont..) • Infrastructure: 5 5 o Low PTR and teacher absenteeism o 24% Schools in India do not have proper school building 6 o 8 % schools Lack drinking water facilities • Quality of Education: o Pratham’s ASER survey: 60% of children aged 7 to 12 cannot read a simple Para (Pratham is a reputed NGO working towards education in India) Source: DISE, MHRD

  8. 8. Secondary Education (Std IX-XII) Success of SSA has resulted in a pull effect on Secondary Education System Secondary Education is an important foundation for vocational / higher education Hence expansion of Secondary Education is important for the development of any Nation 8 The problem areas ….. Financing: While India has pursued the drive Participation: At the lower secondary level towards universal elementary education, since 2000 the share of investment financing for (grades 9 and 10), the gross enrollment rate (GER) secondary education has declined significantly. is 52 %, while at the senior secondary level (grade 11 and 12) it is just 28 % (2005-06). Access: Number of secondary Schools are almost half the number of Upper primary schools available 7 in the country Equity: Most secondary students are boys, and disproportionately from urban areas and wealthier segments of the population. Quality : Assessments of student achievement in mathematics by at the secondary and senior secondary level suggest that the quality of instruction and learning is very low.

  31. 31. 1. In 2002 86th constitutional amendment made right to education elevated to a fundamental right for age 6-14 only . So constitutionally there is no compulsion for the pre school education and no regulatory mechanism has been devised by the government. 2. The gross enrolment ratio (GER) is a statistical measure used in the education sector. The GER gives a rough indication of the level of education from kindergarten to postgraduate education. In the UN, the GER is calculated by expressing the number of students enrolled in primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education, regardless of age, as a percentage of the population of official school age for the three levels GROSS ENROLMENT RATIOS (GER) OF ALL CATEGORIES OF STUDENTS Primary (I-V) Upper Primary (VI-VIII) Elementary (I-VIII) Year Boys Girls Total Boys Girls Total Boys Girls Total 1995- 97.1 79.4 88.6 67.8 49.8 59.3 86.9 69.4 78.5 96 2000- 104.9 85.9 95.7 66.7 49.9 58.6 90.3 72.4 81.6 01 2005- 112.8 105.8 109.4 75.2 66.4 71 98.5 91 94.9 06 Source: DISE, MHRD
  32. 32. 3. Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) is a comprehensive and integrated flagship programme of Government of India to attain Universal Elementary Education (UEE), covering the entire country in a mission mode. SSA has been launched in 2001- 2002 in partnership with the State Governments and Local Self Governments. The programme aims to provide useful and relevant, elementary education to all children in the 6 to 14 age group by 2010. It is an initiative to universalize and improve quality of education through decentralized and context specific planning and a process based, time bound implementation strategy.

  33. 33. 4. Dropout rate is defined as the proportion of children that cease to remain enrolled in the schooling system. There are a number of methods for estimating dropout rate. One of them, followed in the Selected Education Statistics (SES) of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, is as follows: ·Gross dropout rates for classes (I-V) = {1-(Enrolment in Class V during the reference year divided by the enrolment in Class I four years ago)}*100. ·Gross dropout rates for classes (I-VIII) = {1-(Enrolment in Class VIII during the reference year divided by the enrolment in Class I seven years ago)}*100. 5.Pupil Teacher ratio refers to the number of teachers in a school or university with respect to the number of students who attend the institution. For example, a student teacher ratio of 10:1 indicates that there are 10 students for every one teacher. A low student-teacher ratio is often used as a selling point to those choosing schools for tertiary education. On the other hand, high student-teacher ratio is often cited for criticizing proportionately underfunded schools or school systems, or as evidence of the need for legislative change or more funding for education.

  37. 37. 10. Existing Regulatory System : Structure & Process • Centre, UGC and 14 statutory central professional councils (as examples AICTE, MCI) govern the entire system • Regulatory bodies are under direct control of the government • UGC controls the entire university system including curriculums, degrees, fees, faculty qualifications and approval to new universities. Setting up Universities in India • Central universities established by Acts of Parliament and State universities established by Acts of State Legislative Assemblies; • Private universities also require central or state legislation; • Institutions “deemed” to be universities by the UGC and, thus, given university status under the UGC Act 1956 • Degree-awarding institutions of national importance, such as the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), established by Acts of Parliament and outside the purview of the UGC. Setting Up Private Colleges • Approval from UGC and respective governing council • Must be affiliated to a central or state university (private and deemed universities are unitary and not allowed to affiliate colleges) Whereas, most nations in the World are working towards loosening of statutory control over higher education, India is moving in reverse direction (The Economist, 2005).
