MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Education is one of the key ingredients of Human Development as envisaged by social scientists, reiterated by UNDP, and accepted by National and State Governments. More specifically, greater access to knowledge in its various dimensions is critical to building of human capabilities, enhancement of freedom, and empowerment of people. The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) adopted and ratified by India also speaks of Universalisation of Elementary Education and Promoting gender equality in Education. Therefore, we must look at the issues of Educational Infrastructure, Achievements, Shortcomings, and Policy suggestions as a part of this HDR. This paper traces the trends in sub-regional educational infrastructure and achievements in Bardhaman district of India as part of DHDR revision exercise.
