The handbook of Economics of Education is meant for beginners in the field of educational planning. It is widely accepted that there is an acute shortage of resources in the education sector in India. Education at primary and secondary level is getting due attention of the government at centre as well as state level. But higher education is neglected at all times by every government. The rising cost of higher education is a topic of deep concern today. Hence, there is need to strengthen the education system at all levels economically. In the book, starting from demand and supply laws in the field of education to its equity in access has been discussed. This is necessary to understand what, how and for whom to produce before formulating the educational policy. The efficient planning of educational policy requires knowing about various costs of financing education, unit cost of education and sources of financing. There should always be a mutual understanding between centre and state while deciding for monetary allocation in educational field.
