In response to the felt need in our country for reforming or even revolutionising education in our country, the Mother's Institute of Research, which is devoted to educational research, has constituted a few working groups, under the Chairmanship of Kireet Joshi. A number of working papers were recently prepared. A selected number of these papers have been brought here together so as to contribute to the national thinking on changes that need to be brought about in the field of education. The first paper in this publication entitled "A National Agenda for Education" is a result of several regional seminars and a national seminar organised jointly by several national organisations such as the Dharam Hinduja International Centre of Indie Research, Rashtriya Jagriti Sansthan, Desh Bhakta Trust and others. The remaining papers in this publication provide reflections on several issues which have been covered under the National Agenda for Education. These papers were discussed on April 22, 23, 29, 2000, at a Workshop for Teachers at Auroville under the auspices of the Sri Aurobindo International Institute of Educational Research. They present a detailed rational of innovations and reforms that seem to be both necessary and practicable, and it is hoped that they will stimulate fresh national thought and practice in our country.
