From the Paper:

"Despite the progress that society has registered through the ages the goal of universalising primary education (the basis of a sound and secure social order) continues to remain as elusive as ever. In this light, this study desires to undertake an analysis of the state of primary education (in the context of lack of, access to, retention in, completion of primary education) in the Plantation Industry in South India as this industry suffers from exploitation in various forms. In doing so the study will focus on historical developments, policies and programmes of the governments and how these have been implemented in the field (in the form of national level policies and in local level management). In contrast to India, the Sri Lankan experience, despite rather modest levels of economic growth has been hailed internationally for high standards of education, possibly due to the policies that have been adopted by them. Historically, much of this achievement was underpinned by economic revenues generated by the labour of the plantation community whose own achievements in education fell well below the national norm. In recent years, however, educational participation among this community has increased."
