Post Pandemic State Of Education : ASER Report 2022

Current Affairs

  • The Annual Status of Education Report, or ASER, is an annual, citizen-led household survey that aims to understand whether children in rural India are enrolled in school and whether they are learning.
  • ASER is conducted by Pratham, a non-government organization.
  • Unlike most other large-scale learning assessments, ASER is a household-based rather than school-based survey.
  • This design enables all children to be included – those who have never been to school or have dropped out, as well as those who are in government schools, private schools, religious schools, or anywhere else.
  • The report also said that despite the overall decline, three states – Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh were a matter of concern with more than 10% of girls out of school.
  • According to the report, there has been a sharp decline in the reading ability of Class 3 girl students in rural schools across the country, as only 20.5% of Class 3 students were found able to read a Class 2 textbook.
