Předběžná náplň práce
India, as a vast country with fast growing economy, offers many opportunities for comparative analysis in the areas of economic and human development. One of the most important matters in life is education. While higher education is frequently stated to bear higher economic returns to investment compared to lower levels of education, primary education will always be a corner stone of human development on personal, social and economic level. Therefore it is useful to explore factors influencing elementary school enrolment rates.
This work will focus on studying impact of school quality indicators on elementary education enrolment rates across India.
The goal of this work is to contribute to the understanding of relations between quality of schools and enrolment rates. While there are several studies focusing on individual or household-level data based on surveys or exploring a specific state, I take more macro-based approach, taking advantage of District Information System for Education (DISE) all-India data. This will serve not only to test conclusions of previous studies in broader context of the whole India but also possibly uncovering new relationships originating in macro environment.
Panel data analysis of Indian states based on Woolridge (2012) will be used for researching the given questions. Primary sources of data will be DISE.

Outline:
Introduction
Brief discussion of Indian states
Description of education system of India
Literature review
Data and models description
Empirical results and discussion
Conclusion
