The state accounts for 7.2 per cent of the total population in the country in the year 2001, having declined from 8.3 per cent in 1961. The population of Andhra Pradesh almost quadrupled in the last century from 19.1 million in 1901 to 76.2 million in 2001. Out of which, 38.5 millions are males and 37.7 are females. The decadal growth of population was, in fact, below 15 per cent until 1961; it rose till 1991 and the growth rate 24.2 percent during 1981-91 was the highest ever recorded. Later, a dramatic decline, however, has been observed in the rate of growth of population which was only 14.6 percent during 19912001 and, was lower compared to the AllIndia rate, at 21.53 percent. Population-wise, the State occupies 5th rank in the country after Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Bihar and West Bengal. Among the districts, East Godavari continues to be the most populous, least being Vizianagaram. Percentage decadal variation in population (district-wise) is given as Annexure 8.1.

Urbanization The percentage of urban population to the total population in the state is 27.30 percent in 2001 as compared to 26.89 percent in 1991. Among all the districts, Hyderabad obviously is the only district with maximum urban population. The next most urbanized district is Rangareddy with urban population of 54.20 percent.

The literacy rate of the state is lower than that of all India literacy rate at 64.84. The best record in literacy so far at both the national and state levels was during the nineties. The literacy rate in India increased from 52.2 to 65.4 per cent during 1991-2001. Whereas the decadal improvement at the national level had been not more than 8 percentage points till 1991 and the nineties witnessed an improvement of 13.8 percentage points. Literacy in Andhra Pradesh increased over 16 percentage points during the 1990s from 44.1 per cent in 1991 to 60.47 percent in 2001. In spite of this faster rate of growth, the literacy rate in Andhra Pradesh is still lower than the all-India average. While the literacy rate of Andhra Pradesh was about three-fourths of the all-India level in 1961, the state has made substantial progress subsequently, especially in the last two decades. While the overall literacy rate has gone up from 44.1 per cent in 1991 to 60.47 percent in 2001, the male literacy rate has increased from 55.1 to 70.32 per cent.

“Education” has meant children in schools, it is equally important to address the learning needs of adults. Education is a fundamental right, which leads for the road map to achieve the goal of “Education for All”. Over the years concerted efforts have been put in at state and national level to achieve this goal. As per Article 45 of the constitution of India Universalisation of Elementary Education is a directive principle of state policy to provide free and compulsory education for the children upto age of 14 years. As per the article 21A and 93rd Constitutional Amendment in 2009, education has become a fundamental right. This article clearly spells out the responsibility of the state to the extent of providing free and compulsory education to all the children from the age of 6 to 14 years. To make more effective and meaningful implementation of this obligation, elementary education is brought under “Sarva Siksha Abhiyaan” (SSA) to universalize elementary education. Similarly, secondary education has been brought under the flagship of “Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyaan” (RMSA). These two schemes are aimed at the strengthening of school education in terms of access, enrolment, retention and quality. ACCESS: For achieving universal access in school education, provision of schooling facilities is aimed at – • Elementary level should be within walkable distance of 1 km of all the habitations and • Secondary level should be within the radius of 5 kms. In this regard, our state has achieved 99% access at elementary level and 85.03% at secondary level. Primary schools and secondary schools have started in areas not served earlier. During 2008-09, in the Elementary Education sector there were 65,609 Primary Schools and 14,942 Upper Primary schools and under Secondary Education there were 17,376 High Schools and 100 Higher 107

Teachers: Teacher is the most important human resource factor in the school education system, who acts as a facilitator for learning. Teacher is instrumental in developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and values among children at any stage of education. As such, teachers should be in position in schools as per the optimum teacher-pupil ratio to achieve the goal of universal enrolment, retention and achievement of children. Keeping this in view, sustained efforts are being made by government ever since formation of Andhra Pradesh to provide teachers in all types of schools to maintain a reasonable teacher-pupil ratio. Rationalization of teachers, deployment of teachers, creation of new posts and massive recruitment of teachers helped in overcoming imbalances in the demand and supply of teachers. During 2008-09, there were 4,49,145 teachers in position in the state in all types of schools in the state. During 2008-09, 1,83,197 teachers were working in primary schools; 94,662 teachers were working in upper primary schools and 1,67,159 teachers were working in High schools. In higher secondary schools, 4,127 teachers were in position. Details of Teachers in schools are furnished in Table 8.2.
