Call for Chapters for the book “Education System in India: Challenges and Suggestions”
Every year, a list of the world’s top 200 universities is published. For year 2014-2015, no Indian university made it to this list. This does not mean, however, that the country doesn’t have a good standing. At least 4 universities actually made it to the top 400. This fact alone is sufficient to ring the alarm bells that India’s higher education system needs desperate changes, to provide students with the competitive edge, that other countries’ education system is providing. The Indian government has put education at the center of their economic planning. Much of these reforms are encapsulated in the government’s 12th Five-Year Plan, however there is still a long way to go before objectives are met. India’s large education system isn’t just burdened by weight but also has major issues in regard to quality of institutions. Issues related to quality, stem from shortage of faculties, poor teaching based on outdated pedagogy, lack of focus on research, uneven geographical access to education, and profiteering at the expense of accountability. The Indian education system is growing at a quickening rate. At the heart of these reforms and measures is the desire to correct current institutional inadequacies and assure that India becomes a powerhouse of education. The potential is huge, so is the challenge. The book intends to address these challenges and provide sustainable solutions. This edited book will be published with ISBN.
