Questions for Discussion
Does the percentage of students who cannot read a single word differ for boys and girls? Is this pattern similar across different regions? What factors might account for any such differences? Do the types of schools attended or the curriculum for girls and boys differ across the various regions and/or in rural and urban areas?
