Indian School Education System - An Overview

India, with more than 1.4 million schools and more than 230 million enrolments, is home to one of the largest and complex school education systems in
the world along with China. This report on the Indian School Education System gives an overall picture into this vast and continuously changing Indian School Education
System. It is the first of a series to be published by the British Council in order to apprise the readers of various facets of the school education system in India. This report, apart from the facts and figures surrounding the school sector in India, also captures the progress of the country since Independence in the field of education.
This report further covers the main government initiatives since independence and also provides a comparative study of the major Indian national boards of school education with global ones such as the International Baccalaureate and the Cambridge International Examinations.

This report has several purposes and will be of interest to a range of audiences who are planning to engage themselves with school education in India. For the UK educational
sector, this report will serve as a guiding light to understand Indian school education and its progress since Independence. It will also help the readers in the United Kingdom understand the differences between the public and private sector. For the hundreds of organisations in the United Kingdom trying to expand their business in the Indian school market, this report will help in understanding the private school market better and the procurement process in general.India has made phenomenal progress since independence in the field of education.

regarded as the marker value for achieving 2015 target of universal primary education for all children aged 6-10 years in 2007-08
