To understand why Indian universities do not feature in the world’s top 200, with no Indian institute figuring in the latest edition of the QS World University rankings, I asked the following questions: a) Why are we not in the top 200? b) What will it take to be there? c) is it necessary or relevant to be in that list?

"What does it take to educate India?" by Nilanjan Choudhury in The Times of India

The Times of India

India’s school education system is unparalleled in scale and diversity. It encompasses 1.3 million schools, 220 million children and 5.5 million teachers. Eighty percent of the schools are run by the government. They are scattered across 640 districts and each region is dramatically different from the other ecologically, culturally and socio-economically. Throw in 438 living languages, scattered tribal populations, minorities, remote habitations, children with special needs, and the challenge of providing universal quality education increases manifold. 

Despite these challenges, remarkable
progress has been made in areas such as access, infrastructure and enrolment.
