Book Summary of Remaking Higher Education: Essays in Dissent

Part memoir, part analysis, this is a polemical study of the state of higher education in India. Drawing on his extensive experience as educator and academic in India and abroad, Amrik Singh provides the reader with a much-needed critique of policymaking in the area of higher education – its shortcomings, the reasons for these flaws, as well as measures for improvement.

He focuses on the procedural and financial changes that are essential for improving standards so India can be at par with the more progressive nations of the world, and also the absolute necessity for teachers more than administrators to take a hand in the framing of policies. In this erudite volume, Amrik Singh sounds a clarion call for transparency in policymaking and freedom from corruption – for there is no doubt that higher education is the cornerstone of all future development.
