The present volume seeks to review education in India through a matrix of nation-building, democratization process, identity, power, social and economic divisions, and social hierarchies. The book revisits the vision of education of some of the great Indian philosophers and leaders, deconstructs some of the seminal documents on education in India, brings out the significant role played by the people’s movement in shaping education, and analyses the trends and progress in the implementation of educational programmes and policies.

Education and philosophy go hand-in-hand. It is through the power of knowledge, our philosophers laid a foundation of educational theories, and set a stepping stone for the modern day education system and educational institutions. This book gives a comprehensive account of the fundamental theories laid by the philosophers, and the society's role in shaping them up. The special feature of the book is that it teaches and explains more than what an ordinary teacher does in a limited time. It stresses on the understanding and practice of the concepts learnt rather than mere memorisation.

This book explains why the current education model, which was developed in the 19th century to meet the needs of industrial expansion, is obsolete. It points to the need for a new approach to education designed to prepare young people for global uncertainty, accelerating change and unprecedented complexity.The book offers a new educational philosophy to awaken the creative, big-picture and long-term thinking that will help equip students to face tomorrow’s challenges. Inside, readers will find a dialogue between adult developmental psychology research on higher stages of reasoning and today’s most evolved education research and practice. This dialogue reveals surprising links between play and wisdom, imagination and ecology, holism and love. The overwhelming issues of global climate crisis, growing economic disparity and the youth mental health epidemic reveal how dramatically the current education model has failed students and educators. This book raises a planet-wide call to deeply question how we actually think and how we must educate. It articulates a postformal education philosophy as a foundation for educational futures.The book will appeal to educators, educational philosophers, pre-service teacher educators, educational and developmental psychologists and educational researchers, including postgraduates with an interest in transformational educational theories designed for the complexity of the 21st century. This is the most compelling book on education I have read for many years. It has major implications for all who are in a position to influence developments in teacher education and educational policy. Gidley is one of the very rare scholars who can write intelligently and accessibly about the past, present and future in education. I was challenged and ultimately convinced by her contention that ‘what masquerades as education today must be seen for what it is – an anachronistic relic of the industrial past’. Gidley’s challenge is to ‘co-evolve’ a radically new education. All who seek to play a part must read this book. Brian J.

`There has been an unprecented flourishing of new social movements around the world in recent years. This revival has opened our eyes to wider horizons, and strengthened our confidence in the fact that "another world is possible". Giri's book gives inspiring glimpses of this process' - Jean Dreze, Visiting Professor, Delhi School of Economics `A book that gives voice to the unsuing heroes of the worldwide strugle for social justice... and which the huge reservoir of creativity that resides in contemporary social movements' - John Clammer, Professor of Comparative Culture, Sophia University, Tokyo This book describes the visions, experiments, struggles and aspirations of various social movements and voluntary organizations from India and other parts of the world which are striving to achieve tribal development, community development, education, housing, human rights and economic development. Combining theoretical reflection with fieldwork, the author goes beyond a description of the activities of these movements and organizations to engage in a critical dialogue where participants critique their lives and their organizations. In doing so, a two-way learning process between scholars and activists can be developed.

There are many books about teaching in Geography, but this is the first dealing specifically with Pedagogic Research, its methods and practices. Pedagogy research concerns the processes of learning and the development of learners. It is a learner-centred activity that aims to evaluate and improve the ways that students learn and learn to manage, control and comprehend their own learning processes, first as Geographers in Higher Education but equally as future educated citizens. This book collects together some key research papers from the Journal of Geography in Higher Education. They concern original research and critical perspectives on how Geographers learn, critical evaluations of both new and traditional frameworks and methods used for Pedagogic research in Geography, and some case studies on the promotion of self-authorship, learner autonomy, in key Geography Higher Education contexts such as fieldwork and undergraduate project work. This book is a compilation of articles from various issues of the Journal of Geography in Higher Education.
