Impact of Insurgency on Education in Kashmir
Ganie, Rayees Ahmad; Din, Towseef Mohi Ud
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n1 p82-84 2015
Jammu and Kashmir is the only state in India that has made education free to all its citizens at all levels. Nonetheless, literacy at 54% lags behind the all-India level of 65%. The discrepancy is slightly larger from women (42% compared to the national figure of 54%) and for men (66% compared with a national level of 76%). The census figures on literacy show stark discrepancies within the state, except for Srinagar District, the valley of Kashmir has literacy rates of 41% and 47% on a par with Bihar, the least literate state in India. In these same districts, female literacy is below 30%. On the other hand Jammu district has a literacy rate of 77%, one of the highest in India.
