The prime objective of development is the well being of the people in economic, social and cultural spheres. The fundamental elements of human development are long and vigorous life, proper education, and decent quality of living. But interestingly despite slowly rising standard of Indian people, its society and economy are being challenged by regional disparity almost in every corner of the country. Still a lot of people of our country are away from the holy touch of education. There is inter and intra state imbalance in the field of literacy particularly education, enrolment of school going children, drop out ratio, pupil-teacher ratio and distribution of formal and informal type of educational centers. The paper highlights a comparative study regarding the nature of disparity in educational sphere between two districts of West Bengal with development strategies.
