According to a latest UNESCO report released on Monday, India will take at least half a century to achieve its goal of universal education.

This indicates that country will only be able to meet its universal primary education by 2050, universal lower secondary education in 2060 and universal upper education in 2085.

Without inducing fundamental changes in the education sector, sustainable development goals cannot be reached, says Global Education Monitoring (GEM).

The report has pointed out that over 60 million children in India receive little or no formal education in the country. Also, there are around 11.1 million drop-outs in the lower secondary level, which is the highest in the world.

46.8 million are out of school at the upper-secondary level, 2.9 million students do not even go to primary school. The report also says that by 2020 there will be a shortage of 40 million workers with tertiary education.

Another surprising fact that the report published yesterday was that 40% of the students across the globe are taught in a language they do not understand.


The Logical Indian believes it’s high time that the government should take necessary steps to formulate a change in the education system of the country.
