Education has been held as a vital element to improve the status of girl child and woman. Female literacy in Odisha continues to be very low. Girls do not have equal access to education and educational institutions as observed in low attendance rate, high drop-outs, low completion rates and repetition rates in schools and colleges. Though the educational enrolment in formal school especially in elementary level shows an increasing trend, it reverses in the upper primary level and higher secondary level.
