Specifically, while Andhra Pradesh performs well and comes in the Top 3 ranks Nationally in Class 3, there is decline in performance of students as they go to High Schools. Additionally, the recent Summative Assessment -1 result highlighted the immediate need for sustainable interventions to improve learning skills of children.
