The study uses growth rate, percentage, and rank with tabulation and graphical representation for the vivid illustration of information and findings. To examine the trend and pattern of expenditure on elementary education the study uses district level data on expenditure and Gross District Domestic Product for a period of 14 years i.e., from 2002-03 to 2015-16. Moreover, the study uses ranking method in which rank of Odisha has been calculated for different infrastructure parameters. The findings of the study shows that, the state is spending too less on elementary education than secondary and higher education, raising expenditure on education is insignificant in south division as many part of these districts still do not have primary or necessary facilities related education and the literacy rate of these district are too low while compared with districts of north and central division, while comparing the rank of Odisha with other states of India the study found that except drinking water facility and number of govt& private schools, in all other parameters Odisha’s rank is declining over the period.
