Basic Education Level in India

The Indian school education system basically divided into three level “Primary, Secondary and High School”. In India we have 29 States and 7 Union Territories all state has their own state government and union territories are under the central government. As per the Constitution of India School Education comes under the state government, government has the full authority to take any decision on their state education system. Under various articles of Indian constitution free and compulsory education is provided as a fundamental right to children between age group of 5 to 14. Despite many government programmes Indian is not comes even in the top 10 country of best literacy rate as per census 2011. We found a huge gender disparity in the literacy rate in India. As per census 2011 the literacy rate of men was 80% and for female it was 64%. The low female literacy rate also effect the bad impact on family planning which further cause of population stabilization. And global warming.
