There has been a widespread expansion of higher education in India. There are government institutions, private players, foreign universities?which are likely to enter soon, the public-private partnership models and distance education. Each model has its own strengths and weaknesses. With the rising demand and growth, all models need to be used effectively and efficiently for dissemination of education. The right to education is a landmark legislation which has also brought some challenges, like bringing children to school, providing infrastructure and resources to educate them, making arrangements for their higher education, etc. Besides, the learning outcomes need to be guaranteed. The National Knowledge Commission has recommended forming 1,5 more universities to meet the demand for higher education. The Central and State governments need to act with speed. Proper infrastructure is required to remove economic, social, cultural and linguistic barriers and provide equitable education. Coordinated efforts from all sections of the society are required to accomplish this task. The book is a collection of articles from intellectuals and academicians, which highlight various issues related to education, wherein necessary reforms are suggested for improving the quality of education and governance in educational institutions. The major topics included in the book are related to right to education and the road ahead, education reforms proposed and the challenges, role of foreign universities, globalization and internationalization of higher education, professional development of teachers, innovative strategies for quality enhancement, education in social context and the changing paradigms in pertinent areas.
