Building the future

Anna Salome Dunna

Education and employment are two inseparable concepts that are intricately woven with each other, especially when it comes to addressing policy issues related to each other. It is due to this strong correlation that while addressing either of the issues, it inevitably leads to a direct impact on the other; therefore the solutions addressing such problems need to have a notion of coherence built in them. This is a platform to showcase many such problems that currently exist in the Indian context when it comes to the two concepts. This is where we will try and find innovative coherent ideas to address this persistent problem, which has been the bane of our existence from even before the independence. After all, the future of our country depends on the backbone of a universal education system of a type that would result in the achievement of full productive employment.
