According to the World Education Report 2000 (UNESCO, 2000b) South
Asia comprises Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, Islamic
Republic of Iran, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The Report
also classifies this part of the world as a "Less Developed Region",
just one notch above "Least Developed Countries" though some countries
like Afghanistan and Bhutan also fall into the latter category. This
special issue accepts South Asia as the region defined by UNESCO and
invites papers on educational issues in each of these countries.

This special issue forefronts education in South Asia in all its
complexity. Although the countries in this region have been carved out
only in the mid-20th century and though they face similar
challengespoverty, illiteracy, poor access to education, and
multilingual communitiesthey have followed different trajectories at
the national level for education. In this issue we would like to
re-visit the problem areas in education for these regionsequity,
policy, and pedagogy.
