However, District Education Officer Thulo Babu Dahal said that the figure may go up as the exact number of children out of school is not ascertained since the district has over 300 unregistered schools and madrasas running.
Of the children out of school mostly from Muslim, Dalit and marginalised communities, around 60 percent constitute girls, the study shows. RSS
