34% Muslim children have no access to pre-school: Who is to be blamed?

The data coming out from a UNICEF report is really disheartening. Even today, 34 per cent of Muslim children have no access to pre-school: Who is to be blamed?

According to “State of the World Children Report-2016”, released globally by UNICEF, around 34 per cent children from Muslim families, 25.9 per cent from Hindu families and 25.6 per cent from Christian families did not attend pre-school.

“Lack of access to pre-school education has a long-term impact on learning capabilities of a child. It is a continuum. When children enter primary school without going to pre-school they are likely to drop early and will not be able to fulfill their potential,” UNICEF India representative Louis-Georges Arsenault said while releasing the report.

UNICEF report said on Tuesday that out of 74 million children, in the group of 3-6 years in India, around 20 million did not attend pre-school and most of them belonged to disadvantaged and marginalised sections of society, reported PTI.
