Problem

Most of 150 million Kids spread over 1 million government schools in India don't come to schools because their parents strongly feel that kids don't learn anything in schools. Teachers face a huge problem teaching a class because learning profile of kids is so wide. Only 51% of students in Grade 5 can perform subtraction at a Grade 2 level. Drop-out rate of students from primary to secondary school stands at a whopping 38%. 18% of teaching positions in Indian govt. primary schools are vacant.

Teachers can now a detailed learning profile of every student and can corrective action.
