For Tripura Assembly elections, High-powered campaign ended-bound states stood first Higher edu.

Meghalaya:In the coming two weeks, elections will be held in three states – Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland – and political parties are pulling out all the stops to garner maximum votes.

In the pre-election campaign, as is customary, many promises are made. Unluckily, when it comes to delivering on promises, all three states have been found wanting.
Take education for example. Irrespective of their political affiliation, all the parties aim to convince the voters that if elected, they will make a concerted effort to improve the education sector in the state. But that the parties, at least those currently in power, are unlikely to do so shows how bad the current situation is in the states.
According to data compiled by India Data Portal after examining the gross enrollment ratio after higher secondary level in eight northeastern states, there is considerable room for improvement in each of the three poll-bound states.
For context, the national data for gross enrollment ratio after higher secondary level for males in urban India is 34.8, compared to 33.1 for females. In rural India, the figures are 21.1 for males and 15.9 for females.

In Meghalaya, which goes to polls on February 27, the figures are dismal.
According to the NSS 75th Round Survey on Household Social Use in India, the gross enrollment ratio in urban Meghalaya is 54.8 for females and 45.9 for males. However, this figure drops to just 5.7 for women and 4.7 for men in rural areas, showing a significant gap between urban and rural Meghalaya.

A similar situation exists in Nagaland, where the GER is 47.3 for males and 39.7 for females in urban areas, but drops dramatically to 12.8 for males and 7.8 for females in rural areas.
Tripura is the worst of the three urban areas, with a gross enrollment ratio of 34.2 for females and 24 for males. However, the state performs better in rural areas, where the GER is 13 for females and 10.9 for males.
