Question Asked : 48th to 52nd BPSC (Pre) 2008
Explanation : Sadler Commission was related to education. In 1917, the Government of India appointed a commission to study and report on the problems of Calcutta University. Dr. M.E. Sadler, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leeds, was appointed its Chairman. The commission included two Indian members, namely Sir Ashutosh Mukherjee and Dr. Zia-ud-din Ahmad. The Sadler Commission held the view that the improvement of secondary education was a necessary condition for the improvement of University education. It strongly criticized the University Act, 1904 and reported that there is no proper coordination between colleges and universities. Although the Commission reported on the conditions of Calcutta University, its recommendations and remarks were more or less applicable to other Indian universities also.
