Critical issues and challenges facing the education sector in India.
One of the biggest problems facing development space in India is providing quality education to underprivileged children and this challenge is much more in Uttar Pradesh (UP). With Right to Education (RTE) enrolment % of children in schools has gone up but quality of education remains a deterrent to the progress.
Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2016 finds that 57% of the Class V children in UP cannot even read Class II Hindi textbooks. These precious years spent in school with no learning is a huge loss to these underprivileged children and their families and takes away any potential opportunity of these children emerging out of chronic poverty. E&H Foundation aims to address this critical problem at scale.
