Abstract

This paper addresses the issue of spatial divergence in educational performances in primary education sector through the construction of education development index EDI. The paper uses principal component analysis to generate weights for indicators used in the construction of multidimensional general EDI. The paper finds that upazilas are, in general, performing poorly in terms of school access, school infrastructure, and school outcome. While upazilas from metropolitan areas perform very well and remain at the high range of each EDIs; upazilas from the ‘haor’ region, the Chittagong Hill Tracts CHT, the coastal region and the regions along the Jamuna River perform poorly and remain at the very bottom range of each EDIs.
