Book description

This comprehensive handbook introduces the reader to the education system in India in terms of its structural features, its relations with society and culture, and the debates that have shaped the present-day policy ethos.

The book provides an overview of major debates that have shaped India?s education systems, as well as the significant issues within higher and school education, education studies, and policies. Expert scholars provide a lucid analysis of complex themes such as the equity, access, and the quality of education. The volume also examines legal provisions and policies shaping the distribution structure and curricular issues in major areas of knowledge, as well as the provision of schools for the marginalised, economically weak, and people with disabilities. This new edition includes an analysis of the private sector?s participation in higher education and the technical and vocational education and training systems in India.

This handbook will serve as a valuable resource and guide to educators and public policy practitioners seeking information about India?s contemporary educational challenges. It will also be useful to scholars and researchers of education, public policy and administration, sociology, and political studies, as well as think-tanks, the media, policy-makers, and NGOs.
