Using nationally representative data from the 2005 India Human Development Survey, we identified the determinants of children’s school progression and academic achievements. Results revealed important dynamics of disability and income, both negative in educational attainment, completion, dropout and academic achievements. The effect of father’s education was small when it interacted with children’s disability whereas mother’s education had a positive association in secondary school completion as well as reading and writing skills. Policies addressing disability based discrimination, accessibility of school environment and social protection schemes are recommended to improve the education of children with disabilities.
