Directorate of education wants schools to provide data on dropouts due to outmigration

The directorate of education (DoE) has asked schools to identify children who had to drop out during the Covid-19 pandemic after their parents migrated for reasons of livelihood. State officials had earlier told the Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan’s (SSA) project approval board that the dropout rate had gone up in the state during the pandemic due to migration.
