The ancient India was a society with a considerable educational development. Its universities attracted lots of students from others places of Asia, mainly Chinese people, who came tostudy the Buda’s teachings in some of the first universities like Nalanda, that was founded in the VI century before Christ (is it correct?). India spread its educative influencesending its graduates to teach in other places of Asia. However, making a big jump in the history, from XIII century on, first under Muslin control and after under the Britain government,the Indians’ original contribution to the education was reduced and with it the application of educative methods more novel.

From 1947 that India reached the independence from GreatBritain, has tried to develop a system of schools modern and comprehensive. Nevertheless, the education of the plentiful and young population, with its social and religiouscomplexity, it has not been simple. The funds that had to be for the education have had to be used to combat the poverty, the food’s scarcity and the problems of overpopulation. However, theamounts of schools and students have grown since the independence.

The primary education is free but it is not mandatory. In the decade of 1970, the base of the education was eightyears study between primary and (profe no sé cómo decir media), three years of secondary study that included professional formation, so that they could go out and get after study a job,in business or a professional occupation, and then three years of university study that brought students to a degree.

But then, this system changed and was now ten years ofeducation, in primary, (media) and secondary, two of secondary higher education (educación secundaria superior) and three of university. There’s too a national program of adult literacy.
