Why the literacy rate of Bihar is lowest in India??

I know very well that most number of I.A.S officers qualified from Bihar every year, even the Bihari doctors and engineers are well qualified and more knowledgable than others, then why the literacy rate of Bihar is lowest than other states, even the economic condition of Bihar is better than some other states like Orissa. Then what is the reason?? Why our state has the lowest literacy rate,,,,,,, can any one tell me??

Interesting question but difficult one to answer. I suppose Biharis never gave too much thought to education. Schools and colleges lack basic infrastructure, lack of government will, who cares attitude, lack of opportunities, caste issues and many more.

May be you are right,but these are the problem which is very much common in every Indian state. I am trying to find out the appropriate reason but not getting the right one, simply who is responsible?? Govt, caste system or some one else,,,,
This is a conspiracy of different type. Take a communist view on this. Ruling class at helm are different than commonly known social communities. They wish to remain at helm and it needs people to be ruled. Hence, keeping the masses illiterate is on purpose. Britishers did exactly this. They not only broke our tradition old education system but replaced it with equally damn education system that was purposefully producing clerks to serve RAJ.
In free India, we have made no less an effort to make a bad ratio of students per school, stdents per teacher and of course quality of teachers. And at the end of it, what a middle or high school pass certificate is going to make a difference in the lives of the masses when they are fighting hands to mouth day-in & dauy-out! It has to be vocational one and aided later to stand on their own.

Perhaps, it is our intention and will that is culprit here.
hmmm...well quite an interesting topic...
well...
1.Lack of basic infrastructure and amenities
2.Lack of industrialization and hence lack of job opportunity in bihar...
3.Lack of liberal thinking....this "areee bhaiya ka hoga padh likh kar??" wont do.
4.Lack of social security and high moral policing than the actual policing
5.Patna...the capital of our Bihar... still don't have street lights !!!
6.Education is been given importance by biharis...but lack of professional colleges like engineering and medicine..\\\\

...well all in all...if a govt. sincerely brings in the law and order situation along with basic infra and high motivation....we can expect to see a high rate of development...
Pls share your views...
I agree with your views and really liked it. But we should take some needful step.

Imam , I think there is a large number of literate Biahris are leaving outside bihar or in another state. Due to lack of better infrastructure & positive environment still, Biharis are leaving bihar ,they love bihar want bihar's progress.
My dear friends
its not like that there is no infrastructure, no school or no colleges or even no teacher in Bihar. i completely don't agree to your points.
Our literacy rate is low its only due to the Female education and the awareness to give their daughter also education.
The education of Bihar is much much better than any other states.Thats why we are producing more number of Engg.,Doc. and IAS.We have to improve our Female education system.Also our female are picking up and growing more towards education.Here is data i am giving you for your reference and understanding .
The sex wise comparative literacy rates for males and females over last six decades (1951 to 2001) can be viewed below:

STATEMENT – 4
Literacy Rate from 1951~2001
SL Year Persons Males Females
1 2 3 4 5
1. 1951 13.49 22.68 4.22
2. 1961 21.95 35.85 8.11
3. 1971 23.17 35.86 9.86
4. 1981 32.32 47.11 16.61
5. 1991 37.49 51.37 21.99
6. 2001 47.53 60.32 33.57

Just see the data in 2001 males rate is 60% where as Female just above 30% half.Thats why we are less in literacy rate but for your information these data are for 2001 now we will be in 2011 and who knows definitely we had already improved a lot.
This site is where you seem to belong, where you happen to break out of decorum and are able to pen your flings and imaginations unlike other networking sites where one is engaged in exchanging pleasantries, weather analyses, sporadic incidences, high politics, drawing room discussions, blah-blah-blah and where no one spares a damn for orations.

Coming to the kind of education that is being bestowed Légion d'honneur, I have a piece of work by your Lord Macauley, an address to the british parliament on 2nd February 1835 and is reproduced as following.

I quote, “I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such waealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and english is good and greater than their own, they will lose their selfesteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation”, unquote.

May be the president of Turkmenistan before stating “it is easier to rule if people are illiterate or half educated, so why bother with schools and colleges?”, had the access to this piece of work by Macauley.

I can not help pity the idea of labeling the names mentioned above as products of Macauley’s! This assertion seems very much in line with the mission and vision of Macauley which draws people into such clerical conclusions; but it’s an even greater pity to find that RAJ effect is still ruling the roost in our minds.

Those named above are behemoths in the history of mankind and are beyond our established perception of education. People seek education. And education finds solace in them. Even if one buys the theory thrown above in your response, a thousand of Swami Vivekanandas, Tagores, J.C. Basus, Gandhis, Nehrus, Patels, Rajendra Babus, Radhakrishnans, C.V. Ramans are not worth a moral, cultured and educated society which the British triumphed over with their malicious designs.

Yes, such colonisations bring about positives also which of course are never on purpose or by design but offshoots of their establishments; to count a few like railways, allopathy, industries etc, their literature, perspectives and philosophy of life. Yes they are due our acknowledgement for the same.

Rest is all about following the tricks British played to run their show. We have been retrogressive in so far as championing the cause of masses but classes. Things are changing of late and for better. Give it our kind patience.
