Indian Education: A Developmental Discourse

Marmar Mukhopadhyay (Editor) Madhu Parhar (Editor)

So far as education is concerned, India has come a long way since independence, especially after inheriting 81per cent illiterate population with skeletal institutional framework and wide spread poverty. With massive expansion at all levels of education, India has significantly advanced access to education for vary large mass of people. With several schemes and programmes for the educationally deprived people in the country coupled with enlarged institutional network, she has enhanced equity. Quality continues to be a serious concern in mass education though there are islands of quality that match global standards. In such an arduous journey through the difficult terrains of educational development, there is a need to count the milestones - where have we arrived, and how far to go.

The book presents a Developmental Discourse on Indian Education. Chapters, contributed by distinguished scholars, cover discourses on elementary, secondary, higher and distance education. With an expanded concept of inclusion, the book also deals with adult education, education of the disabled, women’s education and training of youth. It also brings in discourses on ICT in Education and a case study on educational reforms initiatives in Gujarat.

Only one of its kind, this book would be useful for the students, researchers and teachers of education, all those who have abiding interest in education; and policy makers and planners who would need to understand evolution of Indian education to give shape to the future policies and programmes to make India move ahead.
