It is commonly believed that democratic regimes follow egalitarian policies and they are less tolerant to inequalities in any form.The global experience in the past quarter of a century has shown a contrary trend of widening inequalities while increasing number of countries are brought under democratic regimes. Education is a source of economic growth and it can also be a source of inequalities if provisions for pursuing education are not equally distributed.    Education is a fundamental right and its universal provision is a national priority and a social imperative. There is a need for countries to strictlyadhere to progressive policies to ensure equality of educational opportunity to progress towards an inclusive social development agenda.  The bookprovides an insight into the issues related to the role of education in promoting democracy and sustaining egalitarian principles to move towards creating an inclusive society.
