Moreover, for developing a knowledge society the availability of quality education assumes increasing significance in such a scenario.

It attempts to bring forth and discuss the various strategies adopted at institutional level for improving school functioning whether it is organisation structure, institutional management, classroom organisation, teaching-learning process and so on. It responds to the growing needs of educators and non-educators alike to have a concrete picture of the changing face of schools and information about the programmes to meet sufficiently the demands of fast-changing societies. This will be an influential work and will set new trends of thinking in school education.
