Teacher and Education in Indian Society begins with an explanation of the meaning, definition, function of education, its different types and is followed by a vivid but brief description of the Indian society starting from the prehistoric to the modern age, focusing on the development of education and the nature of educational systems of different periods – the Vedic, post-Vedic, Buddhist, Islamic, Colonial and post-Colonial. The National Policy, 1986 and The Revised Policy, 1992 are milestones in Indian education. The educational development in Kerala from the Dravidian period to the 21st century is dealt with in detail.

Communalism, casteism, parochialism and corruption are cancerous growths that eat up modern Indian society. The role of education is to eradicate them.
