Present study was initiated with the objective of having an inter district comparison of status and productivity growth of elementary education in Sikkim by applying Educational development index and Malmquist productivity index for the data compiled from District Information System for Education covering the period 2003-04 till 2014-15. The analysis of data at disaggregate level revealed that status as well as productivity growth at elementary level education was better in the North and South district compared with other two districts of the state. Despite its importance as administrative capital of the state the productivity growth of East was lagging behind remote districts of the state. There is need for revival of such performance through better public policy monitoring in the East district of the state.
