Description

Mention `government run primary schools in India`to anyone and the immediate response: `monotony, uninterested teachers, dysfunctionality, rote memorization and little learning`. The author of this unusual book argues that it is important to move beyond these obvious if basically true images, not only to re-examine our common perceptions of these schools but in order to devise more appropriate intervention strategies.

Using the tools of an anthropologist, Padma Sarangapani explores the process and meaning of rural schooling as constituted by the teachers and children themselves. It is based on a detailed ethnographic study of a village school and draws upon philosophy, epistemology, cognitive psychology, popular folklorist texts and the sociology of education for its interpretive frameworks.
