The European Delegation to India today released final tranche of 25 million euros of its 80 million euro grant for universal primary education and secondary education programmes of the government. This brings to a conclusion the EU's sector support to school education in India, to which it has contributed over 520 mn euroes. (currently valued at Rs. 3700 cr.) in grant funding. EU grants have contributed to setting up new schools, improving existing ones, bridging gender and social gaps, providing toilets especially for girls, training teachers, and enrolling nearly all children in the primary school years. India has more than 1.5 million schools in the public and private sectors, with over 227 million children enrolled. Around 1.29 million or 84.7% are in the rural areas. The reduction of dropout rates and the improvement of education outcomes as measured by various surveys are the main challenge for school policy makers and public authorities, going forward. At an event held in Delhi to mark the occasion, Ambassador of the European Union to India Tomasz Kozlowski recalled that the EU was the Indian Government's first development partner in education through its participation in the 155 districts initially selected under District Primary Education Programme in 1994.
