Rajasthan moved up this year on the Ministry of Education (MOE) ranking from level 3 to level 2. Twenty four districts of Rajsathan fall in the Level 2 category, which puts it well among the top states in the Performance Grade Index (PGI) 2020–21. The Performance Grading Index (PGI) assigns grades to schools based on the infrastructure, such as bathrooms, drinking water facilities and classrooms, as well as factors like student engagement, access to learning resources, and school safety. The PGI structures 1,000 points across 70 indicators grounded into categories- Learning Outcomes, Government Management (GM), Infrastructure and Facilities (IF) and Equity (E) as per media reports.
Boasting of one of the biggest education systems in the world, India has millions of academic professionals and students from all socio-economic levels. Performance Grading Index (PGI) gives a glance of the status and background in terms of the quality education of the schools in overall performance. This year, a workbook based education system was implemented in schools to bridge learning gaps in children in primary class and it has helped a bit but the ultimate goal is to focus on basics of education in schools.
The other states who rank alongside Rajasthan, include Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Chandigarh and Kerala. Seven states and union territories have thus far received the highest grade. Three districts from Rajasthan namely Sikar, Jhunjhunu and Jaipur scored more than 80% in school education performance (PGI) in the year 2019-20 and achieved ‘Utkarsh grade’ which is the highest grade.
