About the Book

Education is a significant arena that is affected by policy changes. Private provision of education along market principles that advocate profit rather than broader aims of education, a subject of debate for long, raises concerns regarding equity and quality. Private education institutions, although serve the poor also, are said to be businesses.

 This workprobes the question of education in such ambience empowering the backward minorities, focusing on the Muslim community, and how it enables them to exercise control over their lives and well- being- the empowering element. It seeks to place empowerment at the centre of education policies and programmes. It also focuses on the question of educated individuals also taking responsibility for the progress of their community.

This book would be a stimulating and inspiring contribution worthy of attention and interest to academics, researchers, public policy makers, bureaucrats/education administrators, political leaders and social activists. It would also influence public perception of the role of education and education problems, and enable them to identify appropriate education needs oriented towards human empowerment.
