EDUCATION OF WOMEN FOR MODERN INDIAN SOCIETY, A HISTORICAL STUDY WITH A CRITIQUE OF CONTEMPORARY EDUCATIONAL THOUGHT.
RAHMAN, SYEDA A.
IN INDIA UNDER THE MUSLIMS FROM THE TWELFTH CENTURY ON, EDUCATION WAS AN ISLAMIC DUTY IN WHICH GIRLS PARTICIPATED. HOWEVER, HIGHER EDUCATION FOR GIRLS WAS LARGELY FOR THOSE OF UPPER SOCIAL LEVELS AND ON A PRIVATE BASIS. UNDER BRITISH RULE, ORGANIZED SCHOOLING WAS FINALLY PROVIDED WHILE MISSIONARY AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS ALSO WORKED SIDE BY SIDE. BUT EDUCATION FOR WOMEN BECAME A MERE REPLICA OF MEN'S EDUCATION. DISSATISFACTION WITH EDUCATION LED TO THE NATIONAL EDUCATION MOVEMENT AND THE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT AND SOME TYPICALLY INDIAN SCHOOLS WERE STARTED. SINCE INDEPENDENCE, THE GOVERNMENT HAS PROVIDED FREE, UNIVERSAL, COMPULSORY EDUCATION FOR WOMEN. STILL WOMEN'S EDUCATION LAGS, CHIEFLY BECAUSE PARENTS DO NOT YET APPRECIATE THE NEED FOR EDUCATING THEIR DAUGHTERS. MODERN EDUCATORS ARE CONCERNED WITH THE PROBLEM BUT THE NATION'S GENERAL EDUCATIONAL DEFICIENCIES AND ITS SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC BACKWARDNESS HAVE BECOME THEIR FIRST CONCERNS. THIS PH.D. THESIS IS AVAILABLE FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, ANN ARBOR, MICH. ORDER NO. 63-6261. MICROFILM $2.90. XEROGRAPHY $10.15. 222 PAGES. (AUTHOR/EB)
