    Solution:

    The above statement is true.
    The government has established education departments to develop and supervise all education-related matters. Several measures were taken by the British after the dispatch of 1854. First, steps were taken to establish a higher education system. During the uprisings of 1857, universities were established in Bombay, Madras, and Calcutta. Steps were also taken to bring about changes in the school education system. Woods Despatch argues that Indian morals would improve with European learning. Woods' dispatch said that if the Indians were trained in Europe, the company would get a team of trusted officials. The Woods Dispatch was an educational dispatch sent by the East India Company Directors Court to the Governor General of India in 1854.
