Achievement Survey 2021: Schools In Bihar, Odisha, Telangana And Other States
Synopsis

Seven states of India have schools in the range of just three to five per cent out of the total 1.18 lakh schools of India. These seven states when compared showed no direct relation between literacy rate, population density or the number of schools. 

The literacy rate of a state is not affected by its population density or the number of schools in that state. Data from the National Achievement Survey (NAS) 2021 showed that Bihar, when compared to states with a similar percentage of schools, has a lower literacy rate. Tamil Nadu has a higher population density than Telangana along with a higher literacy rate even when the number of schools is more in Telangana than Tamil Nadu.

Careers360 in its second report on the NAS, compared the seven states which hold the 8th to 14th rank in terms of number of schools across the nation. This article is a continuation of Part 1 of NAS data on states with maximum schools in India. Here the states compared are Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Punjab and Jammu Kashmir.

Schools In Each States

Odisha is in the second position in terms of the number of schools in this group of states, but in terms of teachers, it beats Rajasthan and Gujarat- which belong to the first group of states with maximum schools. While Bihar beats Assam and Rajasthan in terms of number of students.
