This paper attempts to analyse the role and performance of Information and Communication Tecnology (ICT) in enhancing quality of school education in Burdwan district in West Bengal. The study covers 65 senior secondary schools encompassing 100 respondents of West Bengal. It has proven that adoption of ICT as a strategic management tool is a welcome sign for all the surveyed schools. The study result indicates that ICT was successful in predicting the future of new technology for the purpose of teaching-learning and transaction of curriculum and thereby enhancing quality of education. The ‘Kendell’s Coefficient of Concordance’ shows a significant association between ICT and quality of education. The study result revealed a close association among the factors like ‘relative advantage’ of ICT and quality of education. It is interesting to note that no gender disparity exists of effects of ICT on quality of education. However, the magnitude of quality of education lies in its ability to organize ICT through establishment of proper infrastructure in the school. This study also showed how ICT has received extensive recognition as a strategy for upgradation of quality of education through acquired relative advantage, compatibility, demonstrability and image by overcoming the factors avoidance and complexities of new technology (ICT).
