Many districts in Delhi have improved their scores in the school education system over the past two years, according to the data released by Union Education Ministry’s Performance Grading Index (PGI) for the districts of India. The reports for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 released Monday evaluate the performance of the school education system at the district level by creating an index for comprehensive analysis on different parameters.

Each district is allotted scores out of a total of 600 points across 83 indicators which are grouped under six categories: Outcomes, Effective Classroom Transaction, Infrastructure Facilities & Student’s Entitlements, School Safety & Child Protection, Digital Learning and Governance Process.

Interestingly, the districts in Delhi fared better in the Digital Learning category, compared to other states. In the 2019-2020 report, as many as 180 districts scored less than 10 per cent on digital learning, 146 districts scored between 11% and 20%, while 125 districts had scores between 21% and 30%. All of Delhi’s districts scored over 25 out of 50 in this category. The digital leaning category includes parameters such as the percentage of schools with computers and internet for pedagogical purposes, and the percentage of teachers trained in using computers and teaching through them.

The districts were categorised into different grades according to their performances: Daksh for those scoring more than 90%; Utkarsh for those between 81 and 90%; Ati-uttam for those between 71and 80%; Uttam for those between 61 and 70%; Prachesta-1 for those between 51 and 60%; Prachesta-2 for those between 41 and 50%; Prachesta-3 for those between 31 and 40%; Akanshi-1 for those between 21 and 30%; Akanshi-2 for those between 11 and 20%; and Akanshi-3 for those below 20%.
