Most of the developing countries of the world are now compelled to believe that it is the rapid quantitative growth of educational opportunities that holds the basic key to development and works as the basic foundation of future potential manpower. All these countries have, therefore, committed themselves to the target of universal education in the shortest possible time.
The acceleration of seasonal migration, circular migration and commuting of people out of rural areas of developing economies into urban areas is recognized as defining characteristic of demographic, economic and social change with unfathomable implications for socio-economic transformation of rural areas.
