Views: 803

Goa, being the small state in the country still does not show an impressive growth in the education sector. According to the planning commission’s data, the state ranks seventh among the other states and union territories of India. It has a dropout rate of 28 percent from class 1 to 10

Other states like Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have less dropout rate of 19 percent and 24 percent respectively as compared to Goa. Puducherry exhibits the best figure with just 6 percent school dropouts.

The statistics of the Planning Commission is based on the data of 2010-11. It is expected that there will be an improvement in Goa’s dropout rate with the Right to Education’s no-fail policy introduced in 2010 that prevents detention of students up to class eight.
