Now it proves that Gujarat is now behing UP and Bihar’s education System. It was shocking after looking at the numbers for simple mathematics which lacks in Gujarati students against Bihar which is having low literecy rate.
This why we don’t find Gujarati in top service sectors like IAS & IPS.This should be alarming situation to our Gujarat Education system to take steps to come out of such shocking situation.This is big blow for our education system.
Now we have to learn from Bihar For adopting NCERT Syllabus.
Quote by Nishit Vyas,Gujarat Pradesh Congress Comittee,General Secretary.
Bihar scores over Gujarat in education,
Gandhinagar: All IAS officers in Gujarat are currently engaged in the annual ‘Kanya Kelavni’ drive aimed at enrolling girls in schools. A good thought, with a view to sensitise the administration to the poor performance of Gujarat in the area of education.
But the latest study sponsored by Google, Oxfam and Unicef, and carried out by well-known NGO Pratham, suggests that education standards in Gujarat are worse than Bihar.
You could blame Bihar for everything else, but you can’t find fault with its education — many more Bihari will join the IAS in coming years, perhaps get into the Gujarat cadre and then wonder how a state which flaunts so much wealth could get such basics wrong. Called ‘Annual Status of Education Report’, Pratham’s data suggests Gujarat’s school students are behind their counterparts in Bihar in areas of reading. Gujarat is behind Bihar in out-ofschool children and quality of education. Bihar has overtaken Gujarat with lesser number of out-of-school children and better quality of education at the upper primary level.
Worse, Gujarat’s performance on girls’ education — the main focus of Kanya Kelavni — is abysmal. Pratham report notes, “Bihar stands out as a state that has worked consistently across the years to bring out-of-school numbers down”.
As for quality of education, Pratham report notes that Gujarat’s “overall reading levels show a steady decline”. Percentage of students who can read textbooks is much lower than in Bihar. So is the percentage of Gujarat children who can do subtraction, tell time and do currency tasks.
