Compared to last year position of 29, this year the state of Madhya Pradesh has been ranked at 30th position in Educational Development Index (EDI).
In a recent report of District Information System for Education (DISE) , that gives the condition of primary and secondary education in states, Madhya Pradesh has scored very low (30th out of total 35 States and Union Territories). The report clearly suggests that situation of elementary education in the State is in pathetic condition. Despite some improvement in the intake of students at the primary and secondary level, the retention rate has gone low at alarming rate in the State. It clearly indicates the poor quality of education in the rural and semi-urban areas of the State.
