Education is the key to development. In the present era of globalisation, liberalization and privatization (GLP) dimensions with regard to availability and accessibility to educational opportunities particularly for Dalits and poorer sections of our society are changing very rapidly. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar has emphatically raised the slogan of 'Educate, Organise and Agitate,' giving the top most priority to education by giving it first place in his famous slogan. His vision on education has much relevance to the empowerment of Dalits in the postmodern society. The present book includes the vision of Dr. Ambedkar and writings on his vision by eminent social scientists and articles are also included to make a retrospection of approaches and achievements towards the educational development of Dalits in modern India. In the illuminating and inspiring foreword Professor Nandu Ram writes: until and unless Dalits achieve education, their aspirations to become socially at par with the local, regional, national and international communities cannot be fulfilled.
