National Policy on Education: Agenda for India 2001.
Aggarwal, J. C.; Agrawal, S. P.
The purpose of this book is to discuss the history of educational reform in India and describe the steps taken by government to implement new policies. An education commission, better known as the Kothari Commission, published its report in 1966. As a result, the National Policy on Education (NPE) emerged in 1968 and was considered a major step towards improving the quality and content of education in the country. Following a preface, nine chapters trace the history of educational reforms in India: (1) Educational Reforms in India; (2) National Policy on Education, 1968; (3) Draft National Policy on Education, 1979; (4) National Policy on Education, 1986; (5) Merits of NPE; (6) Parliamentarians on NPE; (7) Progress in the Implementation of NPE; (8) Analytical Opinions on NPE; and (9) Corrective Measures for the Implementation of NPE. Two appendixes, "Revamping the Educational System" and "Implementation of New Education Policy (December 1987)," are included. (LL)
