In my opinion the standard of education is good enough.
I agree the developments are not much in MP but I have observed the stardard of education has changed quite a lot.
Specially after the Department of Information Technology has come up in MP, MP has witnessed quite lot of advancements in the field of education. The most prominent one is MP now has almost everything on net. From informations, tenders to online applications. Even now the counsellings are online. I hardly find any entrance exam of MP or recruitment test of MP which does not has this online facility for filling and submitting of the application forms.
The course curriculums have also changed according to the latest trends in education. The government is doing well in uplifting of the uneducated masses and the tribals.
I feel in another 10 years MP would be as good as any of the states in South India in education and literacy.
