Tracing the Education and Employment Status of Open School Graduates in India
The paper aims to understand: (i) the profile of those who opted for NIOS, (ii) their motivations for this option, (iii) their present occupation, and (iv) the role of NIOS education in enabling further education and labour market mobility. NIOS defines its mission as providing access to the un-reached and the most marginalised sections of the society along with those learners who find it difficult to access regular schools. The analysis takes this into consideration while examining the results of the survey. The present study becomes important for the fact that tracer studies are not commonly available for ODL systems, especially for school education. There is no published study available using sizable sample in India. // Paper ID 202
