If you examine the above table closely, you will notice a downward trend in the number of schools in India after 2018. Prior to that, there had been a significant increase in the number of schools, especially as it shot up to 15,58,903 in 2017 from 15,18,160 in 2014. The downward trend, however, does not indicate a negative standard of education. The decrease in the number of schools, in fact, was a result of the amalgamation of schools across India. This downward trend, however, came to a stop in 2021, as the number of schools increased to 15,09,136, while it had only been 15,07,708 in the year 2020. Then again in 2022, the number of schools stands at 14,89,115, due to the amalgamation of schools across the country.
