This paper looks at various aspects of education in an effort to pinpoint the reasons for the poor performance of the sector. Though Andhra Pradesh is doing better in school density, size and distribution of habitations, student-teacher ratio, etc, declining allocations for education in successive budgets could undermine these gains. The non-formal system has thus far proved to be ineffective and for the state to achieve genuine literacy, it is the formal sector that needs enhanced investment.
