|The present study is an outcome of a major project sponsored by ICSSR which partially aims at studying the attitude of secondary school students towards secondary education and its problems in Arunachal Pradesh. The study is based on a normative survey method in which 15 government education officers and 2083 10th grade students were included as a sample. Based on the results of the computed t-test, it can be declared that there exists no significant difference in the attitude of Government and Private secondary school students of Arunachal Pradesh towards Secondary Education. Regarding problems of secondary schools, it came to light that programmes like Vocational Education, Science inspired Award MANAV, Girls’ incentives and IEDSS are not functioning well in the schools. Besides, there are various problems relating to teacher posting such as political involvement, minister’s interference, absence of proper rule regarding teacher posting, terrain, criss- cross road or topography of the posting place etc. and for selecting quality/skilled teachers there are problems such as political pressure, corruption, age bar, untrained teachers, language problem, money power, restriction on the selection of non-APST teachers particularly in Science and Mathematics subjects and so on. Again, most of the authorities face hindrance/political pressure at the time of teacher recruitment. In addition, some of the most common problems of secondary education includes- lack of proper learning space, irregular PTA meetings, no quality education and irregular classes, insufficient funds, no laboratory and its equipments, no library and textbooks, absence of Headmaster, insufficient teachers and absence of subject teachers, overcrowded students, lack of teacher quarters, computers, school boundary wall, no internet connectivity, Indiscipline students, no regular conduction of Co-curricular activities and so on.
