    This book explores policy measures and social programmes designed to make quality education accessible to socio-economic disadvantaged groups (SEDGs) in India.

    It discusses the status of education of disadvantaged or marginalized groups, the discourse around education and equity in India, and innovative practices undertaken by both government and non-government institutions to increase accessibility to education. The book highlights the disparity in the quality of education available to disadvantaged groups, including religious, ethnic, and caste minorities, women and girls, transgender people, people with disabilities, and migrant or displaced children. It examines the effectiveness of initiatives and policies which have been implemented to bring quality education to the SEDG in India. It also offers suggestions and policy recommendations to bridge the disparity in education which will consequently lead to greater economic and social mobility, inclusion, and socio-economic development.

    The book will be of interest to teachers, students, and researchers of education, sociology, development studies, social work, and disability studies. It will also be useful for policymakers, academicians, and professionals working in the fields of education, social work, and rehabilitation.
