The educational scenario in Chhattisgarh is not very remarkable as it lacks proper education infrastructure. The Chhattisgarh government is still ill equipped and does not possess the resources required for the overall development of a good education system. However, the state government has launched several programs for enhancing the academic scenario of the state.
The overall growth in the literacy rate has been possible due to continuous effort of the state government. As per the census report prepared in the year 2001, the average rate of literacy was 65.18%. But According to the 2011 census report, Chhattisgarh had a literacy rate of 71.04% which is little less than National average literacy [74.04%]. Special importance is given to the underprivileged section of the society.
The education system in Chhattisgarh lacks in basic infrastructure and amenities. But there are a few schools and colleges in the state that impart quality education. Hindi is generally used by teacher 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 government of the state is committed to spread education to people living in the state through various means and so as to make the region enriched with human resources.
