Wrote the note on Wood’s Dispatch:
Dalhousie had also evinced in the development of education. The educational despatch of Sir Charles Wood (1854) was considered the “Intellectual Charter of India”. It provided an outline for the comprehensive scheme of education at primary, secondary and collegiate levels. Dalhousie fully accepted the views of Charles Wood and took steps to carry out the new scheme. Departments of public instructions were organized. The Universities of Calcutta, Bombay and Madras were pounded in 1857.
