Abstract

While assessing the status of the schooling infrastructure, the evaluation at the aggregate level (at the national or state level) always conceals the geographical spread across sub-regions, and therefore ignores regional disparities. The laggard regions always bring down the overall performance at the state/national levels. In the planning process there should be differential emphasis where the laggards have to be focussed more than others. To get an understanding of performance at the regional levels, it requires a disaggregated analysis to facilitate micro level planning given the information availability at this disaggregated level. Such a disaggregated analysis is not only limited to exposing the regional scene of educational progress/development but also helps in identifying specific aspects/features associated with varying degrees of progress across regions. On this premise an attempt is made here towards evaluating the current status of the educational development in an Indian state (Uttar Pradesh) at the district level.
