Landmarks in Modern Indian Education


SKU: a38cf4aa7c01 Category:

This book critically details out the various landmarks which have been surfaced by the recommendations of the various Commissions and Committees on Indian education appointed by the concerned rulers of our country from 1813 to the beginning of our current 8th Plan period which is stipulated to end by 1998(if not extended further to complete its unfinished programmes in the area of education). These landmarks bring to light those notable events which have propelled the promotion of education to the shape as we find today. The contents of the book as printed onwards clarify the span which has been covered. Since the main focus of this venture has been only to specify the landmarks, the inclusion of statistical and developmental data has been judiciously and care fully avoided. Moreover, these data are now no more required to be detailed out by the prospective students of graduate and post graduate classes to whom this book is principally addressed.

History of Modern Indian Education forms a compulsory course of study in the discipline of education meant for B.A., M.A., B.Ed., M.Ed., and training college students. This book is eminently suited for meeting the requirements of such students. Thus, this work is very likely to serve a great pressing demand in the field of education in our country.
