Over 1 million children in India are out of school: UN report

As per a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) report, India, Indonesia and Pakistan each have more than a million children out of school. According to the UNECO report:

Globally, around 58 million kids aged 6 to 11 are out of school. This shows little overall improvement since 2007.

India had 1.4 million unschooled children in 2011 but the country is among 17 other nations that have managed to decrease the number of unschooled children in the past decade.

The aid sanctioned to education has further reduced combined with the lack of progress in reducing out of school numbers.

With these disappointing figures, there is little chance of countries reaching the goal of Universal Primary Education by 2015.

Former Luxembourg PM, Juncker, was supported by all EU member states except Hungary and Britain.
