A discussion of the quality of education with emphasis on early years in rural India

A range of literature has engaged with the efforts made by the Indian government to improve the status of early childhood education in the rural areas of the country. Studies show that, despite some improvements, there remains much to bring about significant change. This paper will explore four main questions: (i) the condition of early childhood education in India immediately post-independence; (ii) what measures have been taken by successive governments to improve the status of early childhood education; (iii) what is the current scenario of early childhood education in rural India; and (iv) what can be done to bring about further improvements in rural education?
