must strike and destroy those who aggressed us here in two sets of attacks last year” Hollande had said This coupled with an already intensive airstrikes in IS-held territories in Iraq and Syria

they remain the principal targets of the Islamic State” read the IS statement It also referred to Paris as a “capital of prostitution and obscenity” In fact one of the witnesses in the Bataclan

and some math skills of Madhya Pradesh (MP) students are among India’s lowest the transition rate to higher classes is lower than the national average a majority of classrooms are shared by students of different grades and government elementary schools are 176 percent short of school teachers according an IndiaSpend analysis of various government data As the first part of this series observed literacy rates and learning outcomes are some of the lowest in the BIMARU (Bihar Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh) states By 2020 India will have the world’s largest working-age population–869 million–but an IndiaSpend analysis of these four states–with 436 percent of India’s school-age population between the age of five and 14–revealed that India is unprepared to educate and train its young population The literacy rate in Madhya Pradesh–with 726 million India’s fifth largest population–was India’s ninth lowest 706 percent in 2011 This was an increase of 686 percentage points from 2001–the second-lowest increase among BIMARU states according to Census 2011 Learning levels in rural MP are among India’s worst Only 34 percent of all children surveyed in grade V in rural MP could read a grade II level text the second lowest across all states–only behind Assam–according to the 2014 Annual Status of Education Report (Aser) and the proportion of grade V children who could at least subtract was 31 percent the lowest in India The proportion of children in grade III who could read at least words declined from 80 percent in 2010 to 32 percent in 2014 in government schools; the corresponding decline in private schools was from 88 percent in 2010 to 74 percent in 2014
Dashboard 1 Source: Annual Status of Education Report 2014 The transition rate from primary (grade V) to upper primary (grade VI) in Madhya Pradesh was 8867 percent in 2014-15 according to the Unified District Information System (U-DISE) Flash Statistics 2015-16–below the all-India average of 90 percent At the upper primary level learning levels are worse Only 18 percent of grade VII students could read English sentences–the lowest in the country Of those who could read only 43 percent could tell the meaning of the sentence–again the lowest indicating that even students who transition to upper primary perform poorly in comparison with students in other states Shortage of teachers infrastructure in MP Of six million teaching positions in government schools nationwide about 900000 elementary school teaching positions and 100000 in secondary school—put together a million—are vacant as IndiaSpend reported in December 2016 according to an answer given in the Lok Sabha (lower house of Parliament) About 176 percent of all elementary teaching positions–nearly 64000–in government schools in Madhya Pradesh are vacant Representational image AFP As many as 78 percent schools surveyed had children from grade II sharing a classroom with other grades an increase from 67 percent in 2010 according to the Aser 2014 report Similarly the proportion of schools where grade IV children shared a classroom with other grades increased from 57 percent in 2010 to 69 percent in 2014 As several grades study in one classroom with the same teacher or teachers more training and different kinds of pedagogy would have to be used to reach every child according to an Aser 2011 report The Right To Education Act does not specify any regulations for multigrade classrooms and it is possible that schools provide few teachers with special training to equip them to teach in multigrade classrooms Overall few teachers receive in-service training No more than 713 percent of MP’s teachers (including contractual teachers) got in-service training in 2013-14; the Indian average was 1834 percent according to U-DISE data Falling upper primary school enrolment Public expenditure on elementary education (grade I to grade VIII) per student increased by 50 percent between 2011-12 and 2014-15 but this increase was mainly due to the decline in enrolment than any increase in real expenditure the Economic and Political Weekly reported in September 2016 The enrolment at primary level (grade I to V) declined from 107 million in 2010-11 to 867 million in 2014-15 a decline of 1897 percent according to U-DISE data mostly because fewer children enroll in primary school at the wrong age–raising the per student spending in the state The primary school Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER)–which is the proportion of students enrolled to the proportion of primary-school age children–was 1367 in 2010-11 which fell to 10111 at primary level in 2014-15 according to U-DISE data The GER can be greater than 100 if children not of primary-school age enroll in primary school For upper primary school gross enrollment has fallen below 100 percent; that is not all students of upper-primary school-age enrol in school The gross upper primary school enrollment dropped from 1021 in 2010-11 to 966 in 2014-2015 according to U-DISE data 70 percent of seats reserved for the poorest not filled As many as 70 percent of Right to Education (RTE) quota seats were not filled in MP Hindustan Times reported in October 2016 The RTE Act (2009) requires that one quarter of all seats be reserved for free schooling to the poorest students in all private unaided primary schools Only 170000 students were admitted on the RTE quota in 2016 although more than 420000 seats were reserved The shortfall is attributed in part to an online lottery system that parents found hard to use according to the Hindustan Times report Seats were left vacant because parents want to enrol their children only in selected schools an education department official told Hindustan Times Delhi and Maharashtra also adopted a similar centralised online allotment of seats in private schools according to this report on the status of implementation of RTE The report states citing other news articles and reports that “although going online with the admission process appears to be a good move to improve transparency and efficiency… not all parents would be able to apply online for admissions especially the ones coming from the lower strata of the society” MP also revoked the ‘no-detention policy’ in October 2016 as The Times of India reported in October 2016 allowing all government and private schools to hold back students in the same grade after grade V due to the state’s declining quality of education according to Deepak Joshi minister of state for school education Earlier students would not repeat grades until grade VIII except in schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education This is the fourth of a five-part series You can read the first part here the second part here and the third part here (Balani is a freelance writer based in Mumbai with an interest in development issues) It has been weeks since Maharashtra has had a minority government in place but we still do not know if the Shiv Sena is going to be the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ally or its opposition When I raised this with a political analyst he shot back “it is such a silly political situation that it has even ceased being entertaining” The so called talks between the two parties are said to be going on without anyone knowing who exactly from the two parties are talking More than anything else the entire situation appears to be a game of signals through the media either via responses to questions or statements at a public rallies For instance we have Devendra Fadnavis saying in Delhi “Sena has been our friend” Can this be construed as a ‘reaching out’ After all he and his colleagues were saying this even during the election campaign when the two parties were contesting separately Has Sharad Pawar lost some of his political acumen PTI Obviously this soap opera will continue for some time before the BJP makes up its mind on whether the Nationalist Congress Party can be depended upon to bail them out whenever the government needs a vote in its favour in the legislature And the uncanny Sharad Pawar has not helped the BJP make up its mind also making one wonder if the seasoned politician has lost his touch Remember his offer of unsolicited outside support was supposed to be unconditional mainly because Maharashtra required a stable government and none of the political parties – in other words the NCP and ongress – wanted another election or the imposition of President’s Rule President’s Rule would be the first obvious outcome if the BJP’s minority government was unsettled If that were so why did he quibble about how it was not NCP’s responsibility to keep the government going for its full term Does he intend to rebuild his party in the next couple of years and marshal resources to take the fight back to the BJP in a likely mid-term elections Or like the Shiv Sena is he caught between two factions within the party of its status vis-à-vis the BJP Regardless of what he has said so far one perceived purpose of the NCP’s outside support was that the NCP wanted to ensure that the Shiv Sena was kept out of the government as a means of destroying the power hungry party The decimation of the Sena in the long run is to the NCP’s gain The Congress can be depended upon to muff its lines and let itself weaken further especially when it is neither in power nor in the frontlines of the Opposition a place the Sena could occupy with the NCP being a mere “outside supporter” to the BJP That position is helpful to Pawar’s party for it can wrangle quietly for a loosening of the rope There are cases for instance that the NCP would not like to be pursued against its former ministers It seems to be lost on Pawar that by pushing the Sena into an embrace with the BJP he is actually inviting problems for the NCP described by the BJP’s numero uno Narendra Modi as ‘the Nation’s Corrupt Party’ If the BJP and the Sena get together the likelihood of a close scrutiny of the NCP’s role in the Congress-NCP government increases Unless of course Pawar is playing a brutal game of teasing the Sena – “we are here so you’ll be out” His blow-hot blow-cold statements have nevertheless made the BJP extremely uncomfortable forcing it towards rapprochement with the Sena for some durability But the unwillingness of the BJP to pay the price – a deputy chief ministership plus heavy portfolios – for removing its vulnerability to NCP’s whims are showing it up as a party that is unsure of how to run the government for its full term So what kind of government can Maharashtra expect to have One a jittery one which has to look over its shoulder at the NCP all the time humouring it to the extent it ceases to have command over policies and administrative decisions; two a post-poll coalition with the Sena without working out common minimum programme That too can render the BJP vulnerable to unreasonable demands It is for the BJP to choose
