Education for Tomorrow
Is there, we may ask, an all-embracing project of work- experience that would generate a continuing process of life long education?
All these are fascinating questions, and we can suggest that all of them are centrally relevant to the question as to why we need a new education for tomorrow.
The present book is a result of a Workshop that was organised at Baroda under the auspices of the Sri Aurobindo Research Foundation. The Workshop was conducted by Kireet Joshi and participants included. Eminent educationists, professors and teachers as also a few students. In view of the widespread feeling in the country and elsewhere to bring about radical changes in the educational system, this book can be expected to stimulate further thought and experimentation and to contribute to the shaping of education in the coming days.

In view of the widespread feeling in the country to bring about radical changes in the educational system, we have thought it appropriate to bring out this monograph. It is hoped that it would stimulate further thought and experimentation in education and would also contribute to the shaping of education in the coming days.
