ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Hon’ble Secretary and the Management
Committee of the MoE for their valuable inputs in improving the Annual Education Statistics
report.
The Policy and Planning Division, MoE is greatly indebted to the National Statistics Bureau,
MoLHR, MoF, RUB, MoA, Dratshang Lhentshog, WFP and also the Departments and Divisions
within the Ministry, for their support in bringing out this report. This support has enabled the
publication of increasingly more relevant, accurate and timely information on education in
Bhutan.
We would like to thank all the Principals and teachers of the schools, who were the main
contributors providing the required school data, and the Dzongkhag Education Officers, who
helped to ensure that the data provided were accurate and timely.
Lastly we would like to congratulate and thank our ICT team for enabling the automation
of education statistics through the Education Management Information System which has
become fully functional. We hope that the institution of the EMIS and new system of reporting
information will make it easier and more convenient for all stakeholders and especially the
schools who are ultimately responsible for ensuring that accurate and timely data is reported.
We also solicit our readers’ valuable comments and suggestions to help improve our AES in
the future.

Annual Education Statistics . meaning that 46% of the right age population (6 years old) are enrolled in the 1st grade (PP) of primary. This could be due to the decline in new admissions in PP since 2010 against the increasing population of 6 year olds.

c) We know from administrative data that 1. the Ministry of Education has now come up with a new definition to ensure that all children are accounted for when measuring primary education coverage. From the above.2.3% of the 6-12 years old children are enrolled in secondary classes.4 percent of 6-12 year old children are studying outside Bhutan. This leaves out children of the same age group enrolled abroad. In 2012. children with learning disabilities whose special learning needs are currently not catered for and children of the urban poor. This means that approximately 2% of the primary age children are out of school. we can conclude that the adjusted net enrolment ratio for primary education or 6-12 years old children is 98%.7% of 6-12 year old children are studying in the monastic schools. These children have different needs from the majority of the students. While it is not possible to know how many children are exactly enrolled abroad and in the monastic system. children of nomadic communities and migrant populations.4. It is expected that these may be children in remote and hard to reach areas.

The new definition is called Adjusted Net Enrolment Ratio (ANER) and looks at all 6-12 year old children enrolled in the school system both in-country and abroad and also children enrolled in the monastic system. the BMIS 2010 survey provides an indicative figure of the proportion of children studying abroad and in the monastic system as follows: Page 28 a) The BMIS indicates that about 0.2. and the key challenge is to put in place innovative and cost effective strategies to provide equal and equitable access to quality education for all children.

Given the limited spaces in urban areas and the difficult walking distances in remote areas. around 18% of the primary enrolment are over the age of 12 and 1% of the primary enrolment are 5 years and below.4 Division of primary enrolment The estimated number of out of school primary school age children is around 2. • The last group are the children 7 years and older who are currently out of school. Annual Education Statistics Page 29 . more than 50% of the children entering school for the first time are older than 6 years old. It is estimated that around 7% of the 6-12 year old children are 6 years old and not yet enrolled. They will have dropped out or never went to school. it is very likely that most of them will be enrolled next year or the year after. • Some of the out of school children mentioned above would also include disabled children who may not be able to access education due to lack of adequate facilities. Based on the available data.Figure 2.348 (2%). Looking at the current age of entrants in PP some might still enroll or return to school while some will not. Since the age of the drop-outs is unknown. Box 2. it is not possible to estimate how many of these children have actually dropped out and how many never went to school.1 Assumptions on why 2% of primary school aged children are out of school • A large proportion of these children are 6 years old and not yet in school. while some 8% are younger. The box below analyses some of the possible reasons why these children may be out of school. especially in the private schools. while the AIR is around 84%. In order to achieve universal primary education it would be necessary to make provisions also for the education of all disabled and special needs children. Since the NIR is estimated to be around 46%.

It is thus a key area for improvement to scale up Bhutan’s progress towards achieving its human development goals and attaining the MDGs. It remains an essential condition for sustainable socio-economic development and a critical tool to eradicate poverty. nevertheless indicates a low level of literacy by both international and regional standards. advance gender equality.360. The Non Formal Education Programme has gained widespread popularity as an effective programme for providing basic literacy and functional skills amongst the adult population. national. the BLSS 2007 Page 38 Annual Education Statistics .5 5 NON-FORMAL AND CONTINUING EDUCATION 5.1 Non Formal Education Literacy is deeply linked to all aspects of life and livelihood and is unquestionably a powerful instrument for empowerment and improvements in quality of life. conserve the environment and promote democratic participation. While national baseline data on literacy still needs to be developed. The programme has expanded from 365 centres with 428 instructors in 2003 to 953 centres with 949 instructors in 2012.838 to 13. With the objective of enhancing adult literacy. and particularly in the rural areas. enhance employment opportunities. In particular. the Non Formal Education (NFE) programme was introduced in 1992 initially as a joint effort between the Dzongkha Development Authority (DDA) and the National Women’s Association of Bhutan (NWAB). now called the Non-Formal and Continuing Education Division (NFCED). the number of learners increased from 12. Hence tackling poverty as a prime objective and theme of the 10th FYP will also depend on how effectively the high rates of adult illiteracy are tackled in Bhutan. there is a close and deep interrelationship between illiteracy and poverty at the global. Over the same period. The Ministry of Education formally took over the NFE programme in 1994. The Bhutan Living Standards Survey (2007) reported national literacy rates at 55. and particularly in rural areas.5% . improve family health. Poverty breeds illiteracy and vice versa in a vicious cycle that is often hard to break. and local levels with countries and communities with the lowest levels of literacy doing poorly.

8.3. Girls enrolment in HSS and tertiary education
lower than in the earlier stages of the
general education system. In table 8.4 the
girls’ enrolment in class X and class XI is
compared over the years.
In 2012 the relative percentage of girls’
enrolment in class XI in Public Higher
Secondary Schools had increased by 5%
compared to last year. In the publicly
financed tertiary education system, both
in and ex-country enrolment of girls is still
much lower than that of boys.

Only 40% of the students studying in the RUB
Colleges and Institutes are girls. Girls make
up about 38% of the students that receive
scholarship to study in India and abroad,
showing an improvement of 11% since last year
and about 47% (4% increase since last year) of
the students studying outside Bhutan without
Royal Government’s financial assistance.

8.4. Gender Parity Index
The Gender Parity Index (GPI) is a
socioeconomic index designed to measure
the relative access to education of males and
females. In its simplest form, it is calculated
as the quotient of the number of females
by the number of males enrolled in a given
stage of education (primary, secondary, etc.).
It is used by international organizations,
particularly in measuring the progress of
developing countries. The Institute for
Statistics of UNESCO also uses a more general
definition of GPI: for any development
indicator one can define the GPI relative to
this indicator by dividing its value for females
by its value for males.
If this index is between 0.97 and 1.03,
it is considered to be parity or equal
representation of both sexes. A GPI of
less than 1 indicates that there are fewer
females, in proportion to the appropriate
school-age population, than males in the
formal education system however, if it is
higher or lower, one of the two sexes is
underrepresented.

Gender inequities continue to exist in society.
In many cultures and traditions, girl children
are discouraged from pursuing an education.
Not only do girls experience barriers to
accessing education, but girls attending school
face certain barriers to education that are not
shared by their male classmates.
In Bhutan, girls – by and large – don’t
experience discrimination with regards to
access to education, as is commonly seen in
some parts of the world.
This year, the national GPI is 1.02. This indicates
that on the whole, the correct proportions of
females in relation to males are enrolled in the
education system there is no gender inequality
in the Bhutanese education system. Both boys
and girls have equal opportunities in terms of
access, quality of learning process, equality of
outcomes and external results.

The remaining 47% of schools have average class sizes exceeding or below the target. The average class size for Bhutan has reduced to 22 indicating that the school system has been able to accommodate the increasing enrolment. Primary schools have on average the smallest class sizes.

the Ministry of Education has adopted Extended Classroomss (ECRs) to reach the unreached and fast track promotion of over-aged children to reduce classroom congestion and discourage dropouts to some extent. The figures below shows that repetition and dropout rates have gone down considerably since 2002 by about 13 and 5 percent with an annual decrease of about 7 and 3 percent respectively. around 10.11 EXAMINATION RESULTS AND EFFICIENCY INDICATORS 11.

If children come to school. the Dzongkhag Administrations Annual Education Statistics have also designed their own strategies and programme to track out-of. Promotees. Currently. It is essential to eliminate drop out or reduce the dropout rate to 0% at the Primary Education level in order to achieve the goal of 100% NER. Moreover it is also essential to ensure that every citizen of Bhutan completes at least the primary education cycle to ensure literacy and numeracy. as we near universal primary education. it gives an indication of the accessibility and the efficiency of the system.

Moreover additional subjects are introduced in grades IV and VII. These two reasons amongst others may be responsible for the spike in repetition and dropout rates in these two grades. it is quite impressive to see 100% retention in these levels. III and VI. Annual Education Statistics Page 65 . While studies to understand this spike in repetition and dropout in these two grades have not been conducted. and these have also been observed in previous annual education statistics reports. while this may be a statistical error. in specific grades both these efficiency indicators remain undesirably high. the repetition and dropout rates are very high in class IV and VII. Figure 11. thus requiring many children to walk longer distances the following year to their new schools or to live separately from their families –for the first time for many . It is quite surprising to see that there is no dropout in class PP. we know that schools terminate at grade III (17PS & 24 ECRs) and grade VI (336 PS).in boarding schools to continue their education. As can be seen in the above figure.Though the reduction in the average dropout and repetition rates seem to be progressing toward the Ministry’s Tenth Plan commitment. I.

It is worth mentioning here that such initiatives have been one of the factors contributing to the reduction of overage and under aged children enrolling in school. There is also a decrease of 4 percentage points with regard to primary underage students as compared to last year (from 12% to 8% in 2012) The proportion of right aged enrolment has also increased compared to last year from 79% to 81% this year and a decrease of about 1% of underage proportion as compared to last year. whether this would be the trend or not can be seen next year.11.4 Primary enrolment (PP-VI) Page 66 Annual Education Statistics . Fast Track Promotion of Over-aged Students The Royal Government has initiated a provision of fast tracking or promoting of students in order to enable students who are over aged and who have better learning abilities beyond their cohorts to advance to higher levels on merit basis. This is expected to induce healthy competition around the year and also provide much needed confidence to learners who are competitive and also cater to the needs of the fast learners. We have seen a reduction from 60% of overage children in PP-III in 2009 to 48% in 2012. The figure below shows the Division of Primary enrolment by age Figure 11.1.2.

Internal efficiency measures The coefficient of internal efficiency for basic education reveals the efficiency of the Bhutanese education system.3.7 % in 2012 (excluding children studying abroad and enrolled in monasteries). On average 2005 was a weak Annual Education Statistics . the rapid improvement in NER can also be attributed to increased private participation.4.1 compares the indicator ‘survivors to the grade’ for the last seven years. The survival rate to the last grade is the percentage of a cohort of students who enter the first grade of primary education and who are expected to reach the last grade. girls have more probability of advancing to the fifth and tenth grade. displaying an increased internal efficiency.
