The book examines the state of elementary education in thecontext of the tall predictions made and the poor achievementsregistered. It employs correlation between inhouse and outsidesupport functions and education to determine the functionscontributing to the attainment of education levels. The record ofillustrative developed and developing countries is cited toestablish the point that whilst the concept of total literacy ismoving forward, the goal of achieving five years of education forall remains elusive. The objective can be realized only ifconcerted efforts are made to harness public enthusiasm andcommunity mobilization by knitting together policy, data base,management and organizational structure. Policy makers should alsodelineate a specific implementing strategy to achieveuniversalisation of primary education in a definite timeframe. Inthe absence of a thorough reorientation of approach on these lines,the periodic tinkering witnessed so far, argues the author, willonly accelerate the slide down on the educational front.
