Write a notes on Charles Woods dispatch:
In 1854, Sir Charles Wood sent a comprehensive dispatch as a grand plan on education. The establishment of departments of public instructions in five provinces and introduction of the pattern of grants in aid to encourage private participation in the field of education were recommended. Besides, the dispatch also laid emphasis on the establishment of schools for technical education, teacher and women education. Over and above all these, the dispatch recommended the establishment of one university each in Calcutta, Bombay and Madras, on the model of the London university. Consequently, within the next few years, the Indian education became rapidly westernized.
