Education and Human Resource Development.
Rao, V.K.R.V.
This book, written by an Indian economist, attempts to show the role education and educational planning can play in human resource development. Though the volume is written in the Indian context and the last section is on purely Indian problems (language, youth, and social integration), the broad policies it deals with, the logic it contains, and the facts which are used for illustration are intended to have relevance to the developing economies in general and especially to nations in Asia and Africa which are trying to accelerate their economic growth through planned effort. After discussing the connection between economic growth, human resource development, and education, the book deals with such specific problems as manpower planning, education as investment, the place of higher education, and the technology of education. Two appendixes include (1) a reproduction of the author's address to a Conference of State Education Ministers held in June 1965, containing his thinking on educational policies and priorities in India's Fourth Plan; and (2) 12 tables and two graphs all bearing on the Indian situation, but also on other developing countries.
