Towards A National System Of Education
This book deals with educational developments in India during 1937-51. During this period perhaps more fundamental thinking was done and bolder experiments conducted than at any time in the history of Indian education. The first Chapter gives the socio-economic and political background of the period which was perhaps the most turbulent in modern Indian history. Against this backdrop, the second chapter gives a bird?s eye-view of the educational scenario, summing up in a broad sweep the main educational events of the period as a result of the mementum of the continuing programmes and the efforts of the interacting official and non-official agencies, to devise a national system of education to meet the challenge of Independence. The highlights of the period are presented within the broad contours as delineated in Part-I, Part II deals with the most momentous events of the period: the presentation and working out of the Gandhian model, the and the development of a national system of technical education to meed the challenge of India?s industrial development, and critically evaluates the impact of the Radhakrishnan Report on University Education. The various threads of development were pulled together and presented in the First Five Year Plan, coming as the climax to the period. A national system of education, suited to the needs of Independent India, had emerged and a plan was conceived and drawn up for implement.
