About The Book

Education in India cannot be studied without understanding its diversity. The multidimensional nature of Indian society makes it complex for any researcher or student aspiring to contribute to the educational system. This book comprehensively compiles and provides exhaustive analysis and data about education in Contemporary India. It explains the concept of diversity in relation to the multicultural ethos in India at the same time addressing the issue of stratification and marginalisation of groups. This is fundamental in understanding the policy frameworks for education in India, especially with regards to the origin of certain policies and the modifications made in them over the years. It not only examines the nature of religious and regional diversity, but it also addresses contemporary issues related to it.

Most importantly, it highlights the emerging trends in Education with reference to Open and Distance Learning, while examining the role of mass media and advanced communication systems in learning. The characteristics and implications of globalisation and liberalisation on systems of learning are also dealt with in great detail. This book will be of particular help to all students aspiring to become teachers in this dynamic age, as it will enlighten them about the various issues that plague the current systems as well as inform them about the ways in which change is being brought about.
