There is an opportunity for improvement in the schooling and learning status of children in Punjab. Based on the ASER 2015 findings key points to focus on going forward are provided below: • Enrolment of children in the age group 11-16 with a focus on girls. • Improvement in basic reading levels of children in the primary grades. If the improvement witnessed this year can be sustained and improved next year it will be provide an impetus for children to avoid falling behind as they move through the school systems. • Improvement in basic arithmetic levels of children with a focus on basic operations in the primary grades. There was an improvement in the arithmetic levels during the past year. But children remain far below the expected level. With a continued push to improve arithmetic levels, especially in government schools, the overall arithmetic levels can be adequately corrected over the next 1-2 years.
