Higher education in India: in search of equality, quality and quantity

India has a large network of around 634 universities and 33,000 colleges with 817,000 teachers spread across the country. Despite its massive geographical reach, higher education in India has had its share of problems. This collection of essays discusses these challenges such as 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. The publication also includes diverse perspectives and case studies.
