Records show gaps in Gujarat govt’s claim on school enrollment

Contrary to the state government’s claim of having achieved an enrollment of 99 per cent in schools through various drives, records show that a considerable number of children remained “untracked” in 2017 and 2018.According to the Civil Registration System (CRS) records, as many as 12,14,550 births were reported from the state in 2011.

 

 

 

Subsequently in the academic session 2016-17 (when a child turns five to six, the school-going age), 7,00,245 children were enrolled in government schools, 3,81,255 in private schools and 45,365 in private schools under the Right to Education (RTE) Act.Thus, as many as 87,685 children, which is nearly 7 per cent, were not “tracked” in any of the government official records.
