Abstract: This dissertation traces the progress made in education in the first ten years of Compulsory Education. It discusses the developments which led to its introduction and the role played by different bodies in this regard - namely Government, the teachers' Union and the Press. I have attempted to give a clear picture of the state of schools and the equipment available when the Ordinance was enacted, and throughout the ten years under study. I have also studied the steps taken by the political parties in power to implement Compulsory Education. Attempts have been made throughout this work to consider the scheme of Compulsory Education in the social, economic, and political setting of the time. This has been done in the conviction that these factors impinge on the development of education. Finally this dissertation considers the effect of ten years of Compulsory Education on the level of education of the population.
