Dropout Rates in Secondary Education in Maharashtra: A Detailed Analysis

Maharashtra, with over 23,000 secondary schools (SSC) and 10,000 higher secondary schools and junior colleges (HSC), faces a significant challenge of school dropout rates, particularly in rural areas. While the state has a large number of primary schools, the number of schools offering complete secondary (IX-X) and higher secondary (XI-XII) education is relatively low. This lack of accessible secondary education facilities in rural areas contributes to the high dropout rates observed in these regions.

Secondary School Dropout Rates:

According to UDISE+ (2023-24) data, the overall secondary school dropout rate (VIII-X) in Maharashtra stands at 6.29%, with boys and girls having dropout rates of 6.15% and 6.87%, respectively. This indicates a higher dropout rate among girls at the secondary level. The overall higher secondary school dropout rate (XI-XII) is 2.96%, with boys and girls having dropout rates of 3.82% and 1.97%, respectively. While the overall dropout rates are lower than in other Indian states, there is still a need for improvement.

District-wise Dropout Rates:

The dropout rates vary across districts in Maharashtra. Some districts with notable dropout rates in secondary (VIII-IX) and higher secondary (IX-X) categories are:

Secondary (VIII-IX):
  • Palghar: 6.02% (Boys), 7.13% (Girls), 6.55% (Overall)
  • Hingoli: 6.27% (Boys), 5.24% (Girls), 5.78% (Overall)
  • Parbhani: 4.43% (Boys), 3.81% (Girls), 4.15% (Overall)
  • Nandurbar: 3.94% (Boys), 3.26% (Girls), 3.61% (Overall)
Higher Secondary (IX-X):
  • Dhule: 8.90% (Boys), 15.03% (Girls), 11.76% (Overall)
  • Palghar: 15.07% (Boys), 7.81% (Girls), 11.66% (Overall)

  • Nandurbar: 5.20% (Boys), 6.99% (Girls), 6.07% (Overall)
Causes of School Dropouts:
Several factors contribute to school dropouts in Maharashtra, particularly in rural areas:
  1. Lack of Access to Secondary Schools: The limited number of secondary schools in rural areas forces students to travel long distances to attend school, often deterring them from continuing their education.
  2. Poverty and Economic Hardship: In many rural households, financial constraints compel children to drop out of school and engage in child labor to support their families.
  3. Gender Bias and Early Marriage: Social norms in some rural communities lead to early marriage and childbearing for girls, interrupting their education.
  4. Lack of Awareness and Motivation: Insufficient awareness about the importance of education and inadequate motivation among students and parents can contribute to dropout
