History

This volume consists of records of Govt. of India relating to development of Educational Services and aspects of modern academic profession. Since 1920 the Education Department of the Government of India has produced a series of volumes consisting of selections from the departmental records. Between 1958 and 1971 the National Archives of India and since 1971 the Educational Records Research Unit at Jawaharlal Nehru University have been entrusted with the function of selection and publication of educational records. The present volume, under the New series published by the JNU, as a part of an earlier volume, consists of selected records of the Government of India relating to the development of the educational service, and more generally on aspects of the growth of the modern academic profession in its early stage. In the Foreword the General Editor of the series provides a brief survey of the context in which the Education Service develops and a critical overview of policy characteristics such as bias against native recruitment to higher grades of the service, the academically dysfunctional influence of the bureaucratic ethos of the government services, the inadequacy of educational finance etc. The Editor of this volume in his introduction offers a commentary on the sequence of developments leading to the foundation of the Indian Education Service. The volume will be useful to educationists and historians as well as to those who are interested in the growth of the academic profession in modern India.
