This chapter is a theoretical exploration of the relevance, challenges, and points of consideration to be taken into account as India prepares for the next stage of educational development. By providing context for the current challenges faced by India and aligning the framework of ESS2020 with government goals, this chapter seeks to inform the debate on ESS2020, especially in light of the significant gap in secondary education in India. Though the case itself focuses on India, in part due to its size, relative importance in the global economy and the relatively open nature of its government and media, there is much that would be relevant to other countries that have succeeded in addressing the first stages of educational development and that are poised to tackle the next steps. This chapter utilizes media reports, government documents, and in-country research to highlight how ES 2020 applies, falls short, or altogether misses the Indian context.
