"Since the adoption of the 1968 policy of education, the most notable development has been the acceptance of a common structure of education throughout the country. The book focuses on the review of NPE 1986 in 1992 and the efforts made in the implementation of the NPE; and the modifications made.
While discussing the various dimensions of the NPE, attention is also given to the restructuring of the curriculum covering salient features of National Curriculum Framework for School Education 2000 and National Curriculum Framework 2005.
It is hoped that the book may be a useful source of information for all sections, engaged in the revamping of the educational system in India." (jacket)
