Educational Research in India: A Review.
Srivastava, H. S.
Educational research in India has suffered from some serious shortcomings in the past but is becoming more systematic, thorough, experimental, and sophisticated. In this chapter the activities of major agencies involved either wholly or partly in educational research in India are described; these agencies include the National Council of Educational Research and Training, the National Institute of Education Planning and Administration, the Directorate of Adult Education, the Central Hindi Institute, and the University Grants Commission. Reports follow on two surveys of educational research that divided the research done before 1973 and from 1973 to 1978 into 20 categories. Each of these 20 research areas is described. The strengths, weaknesses, and future of Indian educational research are considered briefly. (PGD)
