‘In Haryana, only 79.6% Class I and II students can read letters and words’
Furthermore, the state also has maximum students in the age group 6 to 14 studying in private schools. In 2012, as many as 49. 2 per cent such students used to study at private schools. On the other hand, in Himachal Pradesh, only 28.9 per cent students went to private schools and the figure in Punjab stood at 45.1 per cent.
In a shocker, Haryana schools had witnessed a decrease in the enrollment of girl students. The proportion of girls who did not enroll had gone up from 1.8 per cent in 2010, 2.1 per cent in 2011 to 3.5 per cent in 2012.
However, contrary to quality education, Haryana had showed improvement in school facilities. As many as 75.7 per cent of all schools visited by ASER team were found to be having drinking water facilities. The number of toilets had also gone up from 67.9 per cent in 2010 to 73.5 per cent in 2012.
