India history and geogprahy
Bengal.—The Indian education system had such resilience that it continued to function till the pre-colonial age. British administrators documented the wide network of schools and institutions of higher learning in various parts of India. These records reveal that in Bengal and Bihar alone, indigenous village schools numbered between 100,000 to 150,000.Source: Knowledge Traditions & Practices of India: Education: Systems & Practices (history)
