    Synopsis

    The top seven states with the maximum number of schools in India, hold the twelfth or higher rank in Literacy rate in comparison to all states and Union Territories of India. Certain states have scored highest in most subjects, yet the literacy rate is low comparatively. Careers360 decodes the National Achievement Survey - Part 1

    Uttar Pradesh(UP) and Kerala have a similar population density (per square kilometer) of 800 plus, but Kerala, with 94 per cent, has the highest literacy rate in India and UP holds the twelfth rank with 67.7 per cent literacy rate. UP, even with a lower population density than Kerala, has almost six times the number of schools in Kerala, yet the literacy rate is lower.

    The National Achievement Survey (NAS) of India assesses the effectiveness of school education and learning achievement of students. In 2021 the survey was administered in 1.18 lakh schools across 28 states and nine Union Territories (UT) of India.

    Careers360 analyzed the NAS 2021 data and sorted the states with the highest number of schools, for easy comparison. Seven states with the highest number of schools were listed together. With 12.68 per cent of India’s schools being in Uttar Pradesh, the state top’s the list followed by Madhya Pradesh with 7.85 percent.
