SCHOOLS IN LUCKNOW
Lucknow is the capital of the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India. On the Gomati River, about 45 miles (72 kilometres) northeast of Kanpur, it is about in the state's centre. Lucknow rose to prominence in 1528, when it was seized by Bbur, India's first Mughal monarch. The city was annexed to the province of Oudh by his grandson, Akbar. In 1775, af al-Dawlah, the nawab of Oudh (now Ayodhya), moved his capital from Faizabad to Lucknow. When the Indian Mutiny erupted in 1857, British commissioner Sir Henry Lawrence and the European residents of Lucknow were besieged for several months before being rescued by British soldiers. Lucknow is at the crossroads of many roads and rail lines, and Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport is about 6 miles (10 kilometres) southwest of the city centre. Food processing, manufacturing, handicrafts, and railroad shops are among the city's industries, as are agricultural products (mangoes, melons, and other grains are farmed locally). Its population, which has increased considerably since the late twentieth century, exceeded Kanpur's in the early twenty-first century to become Uttar Pradesh's most populated city.

In 1775, af al-Dawlah, the nawab of Oudh (now Ayodhya), moved his capital from Faizabad to Lucknow. There are some remarkable architectural examples in Lucknow. During the month of Muharram, Shite Muslims gather at the Great Immb (1784), a single-story edifice. The University of Lucknow (established 1921), a music academy, a Muslim theology institute, the Central Drug Research Institute (1951), an arts-and-crafts college, and a state museum are among Lucknow's educational institutions. A botanical and a national zoological garden are also located in the city.
The Rumi Darwaza, or Turkish Gate, was designed in 1784 after Istanbul's Sublime Porte (Bab-i Hümayun). The Residency (1800), the site of the British forces' defence during the Indian Mutiny, is the best-preserved monument. In 1957, a memorial was created to honour the Indians who perished during the revolt.
EDUCATION IN UTTAR PRADESH
The government's new education policies and initiatives have helped to strengthen Uttar Pradesh's educational system. Because of the establishment of schools and higher education institutions, the state's literacy rate increased from 56.27 percent in 2001 to 67.68 percent in 2011. According to Census 2011, the state's male and female literacy rates are 78.73 percent and 59.24 percent, respectively. Each district in Uttar Pradesh has a different literacy rate. The most literate districts in the state are Gautam Budh Nagar, Kanpur Nagar, Auraiya, Etawah, and Ghaziabad.
The government or private organisations run schools in Uttar Pradesh. Higher education is followed by a 5+3+3+4 system in the state. There are almost 9000 schools separated into three levels: primary, secondary, and senior secondary. The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP), the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), and the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations are connected with the majority of schools in the state (CISCE).
Uttar Pradesh has become one of India's education hubs, with 63 institutions and over 1000 colleges. Two IITs in Kanpur and Varanasi, an IIM in Lucknow, an NIT, and a IIIT in Allahabad are among the state's prominent institutions. Six state universities are ranked in the bottom 100 by NIRF 2020, with Banaras Hindu University coming in third.
