About the Book :

“Education for Rural Transformation: Realities and Challenges” is the outcome of the deliberations at the national symposium held at the Department of Educational Administration with the support of Institute of International Education, Stockholm University, Sweden. Transformation in social context refers to substitution in the basic character of its components: social relations, goods, environment, and units of social structure. It is generally assumed that society cannot be scrapped, and so it is transformed. Transformation, in rural context, denotes the successive changing patterns conceived in rural set: in its structure, function, form and character both in positive and negative directions. The term rural transformation does not mean urbanization of village or realization of cities. The realm covers a wider perspective. It highlights all major shifts in rural ecology and its canvas encompasses agricultural as well as non-agricultural sectors. The papers and discussions at the symposium had reexamined the role of education and learning in rural areas as well as to reevaluated present national policies and priorities with regards to the perspectives of rural people. This book contains 24 chapters and each chapter focuses on various dimensions of rural transformation through education in India. It is certainly a reference book for the scholars working in the fields of education, sociology, social work and other allied subjects.
