Abstract This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of Kerala's education sector, focusing on its achievements, challenges, and the intricate nexus of politics. Kerala is renowned for its advanced education system, high literacy rates and nearly universal primary education. However, disparities persist in higher education, exacerbated by politicization and issues related to social justice. The political landscape in Kerala is deeply intertwined with its education sector, with caste and communal factors influencing governance and policy decisions. The emergence of influential middle-class groups and communal organizations has led to challenges like corruption and nepotism in private educational institutions. Campus politics further exacerbates these issues, limiting academic freedom and governance. Despite advocacy for social justice in higher education policy, disparities among vulnerable groups persist. Addressing these challenges requires collaborative efforts from policymakers, educational institutions, and civil society. Strengthening governance mechanisms, promoting inclusivity, and fostering academic freedom are essential for achieving a more equitable education system in Kerala.
