BANGALORE: Bangalore schools feature in large numbers in the top 10 list of schools across the country in an annual survey.

A total of 5,779 parents, teachers, principals and educationists across the country were interviewed. “Respondents were asked to rate schools of whom they were aware on a ten-point scale – except for the vital parameter of ‘competence of faculty’ which is given double weightage — against 14 parameters of education excellence,” says Premchand Palety, chief executive of C fore, explaining the methodology of the Education World India School Rankings 2013.
