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 present-day policy ethos. Expert scholars provide a lucid analysis of complex themes such as the equal distribution of educational opportunities, legal provisions shaping the opportunity structure, and curricular issues in major areas of knowledge. The volume provides a general overview of India?s education system and examines key and current issues that face higher and school education, the examination system, disciplines of social sciences, curriculum, teachers, law, coaching, and unemployment.

This handbook will serve as a valuable resource and guide to anyone seeking authentic information about India?s contemporary educational challenges in relation to its society, economy, and politics. It will be useful to scholars and researchers of education, public policy and administration, sociology, and political studies as well as practitioners, think-tanks, those in media, government, and NGOs.
