Abstract

The present research paper attempts to examine the impacts of education on sustainable development in the district of Burdwan, West Bengal. The study covers two hundred households both in urban and rural areas consisting of ‘Below Poverty Line’ (BPL) and ‘Above Poverty Line’ (APL) of Burdwan district in West Bengal. As a statistical method, Chi-square test was used to examine the association between education and sustainable development of the households. The analysis also includes historical evolution and principles of education conducive to sustainable development. A conceptual framework has also been developed to visualize the role of education for achieving sustainable development through a system model. A binary logit regression model has been used to determine the extent of relationship between education and sustainable development by a set of selected indicators. Again, students’t-test has been applied to examine the hypotheses whether any variation about the impact of sustainable development in terms of education among the households (i.e., rural and urban or APL and BPL families) exists or not. Finally, it has been concluded that education have had a significant positive impact on the sustainable development of households of Burdwan district in West Bengal.
