What is the per capita income of Himachal Pradesh? Do you think higher incomes can make it easier for parents to send children to school? Discuss. Why was it necessary for the government to run schools in Himachal Pradesh?
The per capita income in Himachal Pradesh is 1.82 lacs/annum as per 2016-2017. Definitely, higher income would make it easier for the parents to send their wards to the schools. In case of low income, parents avoid spending on buying study material and paying school fees. Instead, they wish their children to go out and work to earn some money.
Since Himachal Pradesh is a hilly state and it is difficult to construct schools and provide good education it became necessary for the government to run schools in here. The rate of literacy and number of schools were very low at the time of independence thus it is a welcome step taken by the government to develop a good education system at very low or no cost for the parents.
