Education is a sector where the state can easily abdicate its responsibility without much social and political costs because there is no lobby to represent the interests of the illiterates, semi-literates or young children. The national policy on education (1986) and its subsequent appraisals in 1991 and 1992 seem to be tailor-made to suit the new economic policy. This paper presents evidence on inequality of education across economic groups of the population in India and raises some issues relating to education and equity in the context of the stabilisation and structural adjustment programme.
