EDUCATIONAL PROFILE   

Literacy Status

The State literacy rate presently is 64.11% (source: Census 2001), which is close to the national literacy rate of 64.8 %. While the female literacy has considerably improved over the last decade, a great disparity persists in the literacy rates of males and females. Some blocks such as Alirajpur, Jobat (district Jhabua), Karahal (district Sheopur), Jhirniya (district Khargaon), Sendhwa (district Badwani), and Bajna (district Ratlam) have literacy rates below 35%. The female literacy is below 20% in two blocks i.e. Karahal (15.1%) of Sheopur district and Alirajpur (19.9%) of Alirajpur district.

In addition to the formal elementary schools, alternative primary education facilities have been started to ensure that the children who are out of the ambit of formal education, also get an opportunity to avail the education facility that will ultimately lead to their mainstreaming in the formal education system. The details and status of these alternative facilities are given below:

The analysis of the reasons for children being out of school shows that factors affecting the economic status of the family serve as a hindrance for children to attend the school.

Thus, interventions to help solve these problems need to be planned.

While the State has made progress in terms of providing universal access to all habitations and universalising enrolment, retention and achievement of children; more intensive efforts are required to improve the status of retention and learner achievement in the State. While the educational goals are expected to be achieved under the broader framework of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (S.S.A), specific need-based programs are also being implemented. These address the issues of equity through National Program for Education of Girls at Elementary Level (N.P.E.G.E.L), Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyala (K.G.B.V) Yojana and Mid Day Meal (M.D.M) programs.
