Over 100 Million Children Unable to Study at Current Grade Level

Primary and secondary educational institutions in India face many challenges. Despite 96 percent primary school student enrollment, learning outcomes in India are poor. In 2009, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranked India second to last among 74 regions tested.

With a growing student population and a shortage of teachers, technology is the key to improving India’s education system. Fortunately, access to technology in India is already widespread. Advances in AI will soon enable supplemented teaching that can be individualized depending on learning pace and aptitude.
