Young Lives

This factsheet presents findings from the fifth round of the Young Lives survey of children in 2016 for Telangana state. Young Lives has followed two cohorts of children, born seven years apart in age. This factsheet gives a snapshot of key education indicators for 15-year-olds in 2016 (Younger Cohort) and compares that to the data for 15-year-olds in 2009 (Older Cohort) to show changes in the context of children's education over that 7-year time period. As the key findings show, great progress has been made on expanded access to secondary schooling, but learning levels often remain low. Policies to improve equity should continue to address the position of the poorest children, girls and those from marginalised social groups.
