C.B.S.E. results project grim picture of education for disabled in India
D.N.I.S. News Network – An analysis of the Class X C.B.S.E. examination
results revealed that out of a total of 6,46,387 candidates who had appeared
for the exam held in March 2006, a mere 0.1 per cent (909) were disabled students.
As far as the education of disabled children in
A cursory glance at the statistics regarding the disabled students who appeared for the exam shows that a high 61.3 per cent have passed the same. Of this, 36.2 per cent have secured first class. Again, boys have done better than the girls. 64.6 per cent boys have passed the exam as compared to 55.7 per cent girls.
A comparison of students with different types of disability shows that dyslexic students have fared better than all others in the exam with 83 per cent having passed. 72.7 per cent spastic students and 69.2 per cent blind students have cleared the exam. Among the orthopaedically disabled students, 60.7 per cent have passed.
The figures projected above seem positive, but in actual fact they are far from the truth, as they are limited to the 909 disabled students who constitute a mere 0.1 per cent of the total number of candidates who appeared for the C.B.S.E. exam this year.
