Access to education beyond higher secondary schooling is a mere 10% among the university-age population in India. This is the finding of a report "Intergenerational and Regional Differentials in Higher Education in India" published by the Washington, DC based US India Policy Institute.
Dr. Bhalchandra Mungekar, Member of Parliament, India and a Patron of the Institute was invited for a 2-week tour of the US during March and April 2013.
