"A very useful book for those who look for a comprehensive view of the higher education scene in India." --Loyola Journal of Social Science "This is a useful book for those who look for a comprehensive view of the higher education scene in India." --Loyola Journal of Social Sciences "Higher Education Reform in India is an important addition to the pool of knowledge as it addresses some of the important contemporary issues and problems that the higher education system faces at the present. The papers have thematic continuity, empirical analysis, and, above all, direct policy implications. An important aspect of the book is that most of the papers highlight the problems of higher education in the broader social, political, and economic contexts. As the papers are written by experienced experts and based on rich information and proper perspective, the book is very useful to understanding our higher education system. It is useful for all those--students, teachers, researchers, planners, and administrators- -who have something to do with higher education." --Journal of Educational Planning and Administration As India′s higher education system has grown, so too has the need for effective reform. This volume constitutes the first full-scale analysis of the reform efforts and the changes that have taken place in Indian higher education over the past four decades. Original essays in this book describe how some of the most interesting and innovative programs have come to fruition and analyze what occurred in certain key policy areas. Various contributors present case studies of recent developments such as the Open University, small- scale reforms, and arrangements for research and technology in universities. Others examine broader elements which shape the reality of higher education in India--financial arrangements, the complex language situation, the examination system, and problems of access to education.
