This chapter chronicles the revision of the National Policy on Education, 1986, and the emphasis the revised policy laid on the achievement of essential levels of learning. It also describes the revision of NPE’s Programme of Action, and the imprimatur that the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) gave to the radically new district-based strategy for universal elementary education commended by the Programme of Action. CABE is a high-level body of Union and State Education Ministers in which traditionally a federal consensus on policies and programmes is forged. The chapter also elaborates the policy contest over the financing of higher education and the inter-se priority to be accorded to elementary and higher education in budgetary allocations
