About the Book

The book is an outcome of a national study on educational administration in India. It presents comparative analysis of different aspects of governance and management of school education in different states in India, and comprises eight chapters with critical analysis of structure and functions of the systems of educational administration from state to school level. The book captures change adopted in administration and governance of school education due to policy reforms, innovations and national programmes initiated over the years particularly in teacher management, monitoring and supervision of school. It expounds adoption of information technology and E-governance resulting with paradigm shift in accountability, transparency and performance in education system. It also explicates the major issues which are still confronting with the educational administration and the future directions with intervention strategies to be adopted for the improvement of education system.

The book would be useful to academicians, educational planners and administrators, students and researchers and all those interested in the development of education.
