One of the most comprehensive surveys of the learning
achievements of Std V students shows that Uttar Pradesh children have outclassed
their counterparts from the rest of India. The study, undertaken by the NCERT, has
revealed that the mean achievement of Uttar Pradesh students in language (71.12%)
and mathematics (72.89%) is the highest in the country, while in environmental studies,
Mayawati's state (67.15%) is behind the topper, Tamil Nadu (72.30%). In comparision,
Maharashtra has performed the best in language (63.87%), followed by environmental
studies (57.81%) and mathematics (57.70%). But a key feature of the performance
in the state is that rural children have outshone their urban peers in mathematics.
However, in all respects the performance of girls', rural children and percentage
of students getting more than 80% Uttar Pradesh has outscored the rest.
