Karnataka 14th in centre’s education grading index
 Karnataka stood 14th in the Performance Grading Index (PGI) released by the ministry of education last week. With an overall score of 862, the state’s performance has seen a drastic improvement over the last four years.
PGI is a relatively new index that measures the performance of states/UTs to provide an insight into the status of school education. The data is drawn from the Unified District Information System for Education Plus (UDISE+) 2020-21, National Achievement Survey MDM Portal, etc. The indicators include learning outcomes, equity, access, infrastructure, and governance processes.
Karnataka moved up from the sixth level of 701-750 score in 2017-18 to level 5 in 2018-19, level 4 in 2019-20, and now level 3. There are no states in level 1 so far.
In level 2, seven states/UTs — Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chandigarh, Punjab, Kerala, and Rajasthan — have achieved a score of 900+.
Karnataka is second in the country in learning outcomes, with a score of 160. Rajasthan (168) tops the chart. In the domain of access, Karnataka has a score of 76. Kerala, Punjab and Delhi have 79, Tamil Nadu 78, and Andhra Pradesh 77.
Karnataka’s biggest drawback is in infrastructure. With 123 points, the state is 28th in the domain. Indicators such as availability of ICT (information and communications technology) facilities and timely availability of textbooks and uniforms are measured in this domain, along with toilets, drinking water, classrooms, etc. But Karnataka has made the second-highest improvement from last year in this segment.
