Equality in the sexes in terms of their access to education and health has an intrinsic value in its own light. In India, the total enrolment in primary schools in India during the year was 1, 97, where only 95, of them were girls.

Young girls in India are often forced to or voluntarily drop out of schools since they either have to look after their younger siblings or have to contribute to the household chores. Centres opened by Oxfam India in different areas in priority and priority plus states help both school going and non-school going kids to be at par with the school curriculum. The non-school going kids are prepared so that they are able to appear for the admission tests in schools and get enrolled in an age-appropriate class.

A child who was unable to read or write is also taught in a manner that suits his interests leading to maximum learning.

If a child fails or is unable to clear her tests or exams she becomes demotivated to continue her studies. Community organizations help these children to complete their schooling through registrations with NIOS. These community-based organizations also offer various vocational courses like English speaking, stitching, BPO service calling for the girls to be able to be economically dependent.

If educated, girls can contribute equally to economic development thus reducing gender imbalances in terms of education which enhances human capital formation.

An extensive study on the human capital theory suggests that education plays a major role in increasing the productivity of the economy by increasing the factor output per worker.

Education and human resource development are at the center of long-term economic developmental plans.

If he fails in the re-examination, the relevant central or state government may decide to allow schools to detain the child.

Others argue that detaining a child leads to drop outs and does not focus on the systemic factors that affect learning such as quality of teachers, schools, and assessment. Provisions of the Bill regarding assessment and detention are at variance with what most states have demanded. In this context, the question is whether these decisions should be taken by Parliament or left to state legislatures. It is unclear as to who will conduct the examination which may lead to detention : centre, state, or the school.

This automatic promotion to the next class is to ensure that detention would not lead to them dropping out of school. For example, Goa did not detain children till class 3, Tamil Nadu till class 5, and Assam till class 7.

Key Features Under the Act, no child may be detained till he completes class 8. If a child fails the examination, he will be given additional instruction, and the opportunity for a re-examination within two months from the declaration of the result.

It is the parents' responsibility to send the children to schools in the US and other countries. A number of other provisions regarding improvement of school infrastructure, teacher-student ratio and faculty are made in the Act. Implementation and funding[ edit ] Education in the Indian constitution is a concurrent issue and both centre and states can legislate on the issue.
