There are 50 million children not attending primary school in South Asia. Another 40 per cent drop out of school every year. Yet, despite the fact that South Asia has emerged as the most illiterate region in the world, universal primary education for all in the next five years is not a utopian vision but an achievable reality. Police-makers not only can, but must, act now to end the region's shameful neglect of basic education. This is the central message that emerges from the 1998 Report on Human Development in South Asia.

Literacy is a necessary though not sufficient for economic development. As Bangladesh strives to raise the living standards of its population, the present accepted high level of literacy restricts the country’s potential for development in the areas of economic growth, education and the quality of life of its citizens. It is well nigh impossible to state with any degree of confidence what the illiteracy rate is as definitions of illiteracy have changed over recent decades and the existing measures lack validity. The present study expands on traditional concepts of literacy.

In mid-nineteenth century, Devon and Suffolk were both agricultural counties and yet the level of literacy differed considerably between them. This book undertakes an investigation of literacy both between and within the two counties and in the process attempts to resolve why Devon was so much more literate than Suffolk. This study of the complicated set of causes for the growth of literacy breaks new ground in a great contemporary importance. Although it gives few conclusive answers it does demonstrate how this neglected subject of literacy should be done in the future.

Human capital formation is the sine qua non for improvement in the lives of people. Bangladesh has not performed to the best of its potential in developing this capital and remain a country where illiteracy is rampant. The Constitution of the country enshrines the right of the child to free and compulsory primary education. In recent times, a number of interventions have been made in public, private and NGO sectors to attain the goal of universal primary education. However, no sector has invested enough in monitoring the progress towards the desired goal.
