Education in Chhattisgarh

Chhattisgarh is one of the newest states of India. Formed in the end of the year 2000, the Chhattisgarh government is still ill equipped and does not possess the resources required for the overall development of a good education system. However it is due to the constant efforts by the government authorities that the Chhattisgarh education system has recorded an impressive literacy rate of 77.86% for males and 52.40% for females. The average rate of literacy in Chhattisgarh stands at 65.18% as per the census report prepared in the year 2001. The central and state government establishment has taken steps to promote children’s and women’s education in Chhattisgarh. Raipur, the capital of this Central Indian state, is also the education hub of Chhattisgarh. Today, resident and non-resident students seek education in Chhattisgarh.

Education System in Chhattisgarh

The education system in Chhattisgarh lacks in basic infrastructure and amenities. But there are quite a few schools and colleges in the state that impart quality education. Hindi is generally used by teachers as the medium of instruction in both schools and colleges of Chhattisgarh. But with demand for English growing, institutes are also trying to incorporate this universally accepted language in their teaching programs. The different tiers of education system in Chhattisgarh are:-

-Preliminary / Montessori School

-Primary School

-High School


-Post graduation

-Research / Doctorate

Schools in Chhattisgarh

In Chhattisgarh, children are required to study for three years in a Montessori school before they proceed to the primary and high sections of school. After completing Montessori, the 10+2 pattern of syllabus is followed in all Chhattisgarh schools. The best schools of Chhattisgarh follow the syllabus set by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). However, there are a few schools that subscribe to the Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE).
