The Challenges for Indiaâ€™s Education System
Working Papers from eSocialSciences
Indiaâ€™s education system turns out millions of graduates each year, many skilled in IT and engineering. This manpower advantage underpins Indiaâ€™s recent economic advances, but masks deepseated problems within Indiaâ€™s education system. While Indiaâ€™s demographics are generally perceived to give it an edge over other countriesâ€™ economies (India will have a youthful population when other countries have ageing populations), if this advantage is restricted to a small, highly educated elite, the domestic political ramifications could be severe.
