Q.3:- Why do we observe regional differences in educational attainment in India?

 

Answer



There is great regional differences in educational attainment in India. Some states like Kerela, Tamil Nadu and Uttranchal have higher literacy rates while states like Bihar, Rajasthan, U.P and Arunachal Pradesh have low literacy rates. This is due to inequalities of income and wealth on large scale also lack of investment by government on education. The people of these states give less importance to education and are mainly employed in agricultural sector or informal sector that has very less to do with education.
