Education


An overview: –

Karnataka has over 50,000 schools of which 22342 are Government lower primary schools and 26,374 are Government Higher Primary Schools. Government Schools cater to 92% of the school-going child population, who are largely children from families living in deprived circumstances. In Bangalore alone 35000 children were living in the streets in the late 1980s and the number has risen to 60000. Though there is a good percentage of literacy rate yet, the dropout rate is also a matter of concern. A major cause of poverty among rural people in India is lack of access to schools and quality education. High levels of illiteracy, inadequate health care and extremely limited access to social services are common among poor rural people.Children from marginalised sectors are given priority for admissions in our centres.
