Globalization and Higher Education in India

Book description

An attempt to reform the Indian education system would be incomplete without an engagement with the educational reforms and policies practiced in different parts of the world. At the same time, there is a need to understand the impact of globalization within the more localized sphere of ground realities in India. Globalization and Higher Education in India understands this need and analyses how the Indian education system can be re-structured to shape the cognitive skills, inter-personal sensibilities and cultural sophistication of the children of our country and prepare them for a globalized knowledge society. For scholars and practitioners in the field of sociology and education, this volume offers interesting insights into the effect of liberalization on education and the impact of initiatives like public-private partnership. With its exploration of the roadblocks and facilitators on the road to educational reforms, this volume provides much-needed guidance for policy-makers in the field of education.
