The Public Accountability and Governance in Education (PAGE) project at CPR has written a series of policy briefs and analytical articles in the run-up to the New Education Policy (NEP), 2015, to be announced next month.

The NEP will be revised after more than a decade, and will be critical in defining access to and unversalisation of quality education, going forward.For a more detailed understanding of the processes and issues, read below:
