Pratham, an NGO focused on education in India, will carry out two studies on post-primary education in India, with a focus on the needs and challenges of girls. The first study will bring together many disparate sources of existing data and information to improve understanding of the current state of post-primary education in India. The second study will follow a cohort of children in post-primary schools in two states in India to assess their learning outcomes and, at the same time, look at how post-primary schools are organized, functioning, and the capacity of teachers.
