[MLE] FW: Primary education in India

Dear MLE Interest Group,
Attached is some background reading.

Primary Education in India
Prospects of Meeting the MDG Target
Sonia Bhalotra and Bernarda Zamora

A quote from the conclusion:

Putting the fairly positive results for attendance together with the worrying results for
completion rates serves to highlight the importance of late entry and dropout. It
suggests that the causes of late entry and dropout are not to be found amongst
variables conventionally analysed – such as household wealth, distance to school or
maternal education. This is an area that merits further exploration.

You may be already familiar with the attached paper – but wanted to be sure. I haven’t read it all but it seems to look at completion rates and reasons etc.

For what it is worth ….
