Appalling Statistics About Number Of Graduates

In India, out of every hundred students, only 12.4 reach college, i.e only 12.4% of high school passouts enroll in colleges. In Africa, just over 6% of school students enter college.Worldwide, on an average, just 23% of school students enter college.

The statistics is appalling as we can see that almost 75% of the world population does not get a college education. And how many of the college goers really get quality education or understand all the subjects they opt for at studies. Stunning and sad educational scenario indeed!

The following movie clip from Swades(with English subtitles) highlights the barriers to even school education in Indian villages.
