Illiteracy in India
The illiteracy levels from the year 1991 to 2006 have risen to a whopping 63 percent. India possesses the largest illiterate population. Literacy rates stood at 82.14 percent for men in 2011 and 65.46 percent for women. This low female literacy is also responsible for the dependency of women on men for activities which requires them to read and write. Thus, this all leads to the formation of a vicious circle. Again, it is no new concept that rich households will have better access to educational facilities as compared to poor households. Poor households due to the lack of skills and knowledge involve themselves with unskilled labor in order to save the bread for the family, thus, this reduces the focus from achieving education as the main focus deviates to earning an income so as to be able to survive in the society.
