The book entitled “Education and Development” contains 16 papers and is the outcome of a national level seminar on “Higher Education and Development” organized under my leadership at Kalimpong Degree College in May 1998 with a financial help received from the Ford Foundation, New Delhi.It is desired that the curriculum should be so designed as to provide the student community with highly specialized knowledge, skill, ideas and a perception for the future as well as a clear and a critical understanding of social, economic, cultural, moral, spiritual and developmental issues. Science and technology education should be intensified for the fullest development of agriculture, horticulture, foriculture, sericulture, forestry, animal husbandry and industries based on local raw materials.
