Universalisation of elementary education (UEE) has been accepted as a national goal since 1950. The Directive Principles of the Constitution of India envisage provision of free and compulsory elementary education to all children up to the age of 14 years. Human development is predicated upon universal access to education, with its implications for equity and social justice. Further, Karnataka have been quite remarkable, and the state is moving towards universal literacy at a steady pace. Though there is a progress in the level of education, some of the regions are still backward. However, in the light of the above, it is pertinent to analyze the status of elementary schools in terms of its enrolment level as well as drop-outs at elementary stage. This paper has concluded that, Chamarajanagara is a backward district in both economical and educational aspects. Especially in education, it is very poor in terms of enrolment and education attainment. The main obstacle is drop-out to achieve the educational achievements in the district. But now, the level of drop-out in elementary school in the district is declining steadily from the last decade due to the government participation through the various policies and programmes.
