Higher-ed in India is a Mega Challenge: Review and Recommendations
What is it about?
This paper (chapter in a book on global university-industry-government links) looks at the very complex and challenging situation of the fast-growing (but stymied, on many fronts) higher educational sector in India. A treatment this short, of course, is only a starting point. But, as authors, we have provided the necessary material to grasp the challenges and to embark on courses of action.
Why is it important?
With one of the youngest populations and a burgeoning workforce that needs massive educational inputs, this paper is important in terms of: (a) reviewing the complex situation of India, (b) identifying main challenges, (c) suggesting courses of action for the higher education sector of India.
