Aditi Gandhi & Kanhu Charan Pradhan

This note reviews the reasons due to which the currently out of school population did not enrol or discontinued education for both genders in rural and urban India. The analysis seeks to determine the importance of financial constraints, parental preferences and gender specific influences in causing a student to not enrol or drop out of school. It is also observed that the urban-rural disparity in education completion rates progressively widens from Elementary to Secondary to higher levels of education. This trend is also explored.
