India has a large network of around 634 universities and 33,000 colleges with 817,000 teachers spread across the length and breadth of the country.

Despite its massive geographical reach, higher education in India has had its share of problems.

This volume is a collection of essays which discusses these problems like inclusiveness and the impact of reservation on education, the problems of mediocrity, shortage of funds, dwindling numbers of faculty and the unemployment of the educated youth, to name a few.

Tracing the history of higher education in India from the days of Nalanda and Takshashila, Jandhyala B. G. Tilak in his introduction explains why it is necessary to have a vision and a roadmap for this.

It includes diverse perspectives and case studies on a few educational institutes like the University of Mysore (pp. 239-251), IITs (pp. 309-25) to explain these issues.



Author Bio: Jandhyala B. G. Tilak is professor at the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA), New Delhi.
