Abstract: In secondary schools in India (from class 6 to class 10), geography is taught as a required subject by all of the country’s school boards. Although the topic is regarded as social science, there are significant variations in how it is taught in schools throughout school boards. Using primary data and a literature review, the report gives a general summary of geography taught in secondary schools. with special attention to its role in the curriculum, the credentials of geography teachers, its methodology, the resources and tools available for teaching it, and its overall perception in the classroom. In addition, it lists the main difficulties facing geography instructors, school principals, school board members, and State Councils of Educational Research and Training (SCERTs) as well as offering some suggestions. The study makes the case that geography’s vastness and complexity are the main causes of the discrepancies in how it is taught in India’s secondary schools.
