WASTAGE AND STAGNATION IN PRIMARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS IN INDIA. PROJECT REPORT.
SAPRA, C.L.; SHARMA, R.C.
THE EXTENT OF WASTAGE (DROPOUTS) AND STAGNATION (GRADE REPETITION) AT THE PRIMARY AND MIDDLE STAGES OF EDUCATION, THE CAUSES OF WASTAGE, AND THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF EACH CAUSE WERE INVESTIGATED IN INDIA. THE STUDY IS AN OUTCOME OF COLLABORATION BETWEEN INDIA'S NATIONAL COUNCIL OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND TRAINING, AND THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION. BACKGROUND MATERIAL, INCLUDING AN ANALYSIS OF THE PROBLEM AND A REVIEW OF RELATED STUDIES, IS PRESENTED. THE EXTENT OF WASTAGE WAS DETERMINED ON THE BASIS OF NATIONAL ENROLLMENT IN EACH GRADE FOR THE YEARS 1950-51 THROUGH 1963-64. DATA FROM SCHOOL RECORDS AND INTERVIEWS WITH PUPILS, PARENTS, AND TEACHERS WERE ANALYZED UNDER THREE AREAS HYPOTHESIZED AS COVERING THE POSSIBLE CAUSES OF DROPPING OUT. PUPIL AND FAMILY FACTORS WERE STUDIED BY STATISTICALLY ANALYZING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN DROPOUTS AND STAYINS. SCHOOL FACTORS WERE ANALYZED IN RELATION TO THE RATE OF DROPOUT IN EACH OF THE SAMPLE SCHOOLS. THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF EACH DETERMINED CAUSE WAS RATED BY DISCRIMINANT FUNCTION ANALYSIS AND OPINION POLL. RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR RESEARCH ARE GIVEN. (PS)
