An interesting fact about the Indian education system, even before colonial India :-

Between 1835 and 1838, William Adam, a Scottish missionary, conducted a survey on the state of education in Bihar and Bengal (Bihar and Bengal were ‘fused’ into each other even before the Battle of Plassey).

William Adam found that almost every village had a Pathshala and estimated that there were about 1,00,000 such schools in Bengal and Bihar.
