These are the days we are speaking about cent percent literacy. Politicians’ assurance about giving free schemes for Education is on the raise. Government spends through Sarva Sikshya Abhyan and other schemes to educate children. So many facilities to give free Education are given by the state Government. The awareness of RTE (Right to Education) is more; it seems in the minds of general public. Nook and Corner, schools are coming and the roads are flooded the private school vans and buses.

With all these factors in the positive side, a National Survey in its sample estimation. Says out-of-school children aged 6-13 is more than half of them in Tamil Nadu are school drop out.

What does it mean?

What happens to effective steps through Right to Reservation Act and the various steps taken to promote Primary Education sector by the state Government of Tamil Nadu.

No doubt! Various social measures like easy Admission process, Noon meal scheme, free cycles, free text books, Lap-top etc are comfortable given by the state Government.

Is it so, they are not yielding proper result! Or they are not reaching the users properly?

The news, “More than half of the children in the age group 6-13 are drop out” is really alarming and it is regretful and hard to accept and digest.

Who has organized this survey? It is Educational Consultants India, which is none but a Government of India enterprise. The survey was conducted by the supports of Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Another alarming fact is, education has become the property of rich sector, irrespective of all the good measures taken by the State Government.

Most of the Educationists who wanted to service with philanthropic approach to the cause of Education were thrown out to streets since they were not able to complete with rich and otherwise big brothers of Tamil Nadu who are the business owners of Educational Institution. Even a rough statistics may reveal, if taken into account in and around Tamil Nadu, most of the owners of schools colleges, universities had entirely different kind of origin of business like real estate brokers, Arrack shop owners, Gundas, cut-throat politicians etc. the way in which they acquire lands and money have got their own stories. After acquiring financial status, they are hiding themselves in the shelter of “Education Philanthropic personalities”.

The statistics released recently reveals that the number of drop outs have increased by more than 7000 compared to the findings of the survey in 2009. That is, the percentage of drop outs have increased from 43% to 53.57%.
