Brief: Gains in education attainment

Shiny Saha, Kanhu Charan Pradhan & Aditi Gandhi

In this note we review the participation in elementary and higher education over time to identify the changing pattern in education enrolment and attainment, in both rural and urban India. We find that significant gains have been made in attainment of education over the past fifty years. However, the levels in attainment of secondary education are still perceptibly low. Further, while in urban areas the gender disparity has closed, in rural areas, it still persists.
