This book assesses how efficient primary and upper primary education is across different states of India considering both output oriented and input oriented measures of technical efficiency. It identifies the most important factors that could produce differential efficiency among the states, including the effects of central grants, school-specific infrastructures, social indicators and policy variables, as well as state-specific factors like per-capita net-state-domestic-product from the service sector, inequality in distribution of income (Gini coefficient), the percentage of people living below the poverty line and the density of population. The study covers the period 2005-06 to 2010-11 and all the states and union territories of India, which are categorized into two separate groups, namely: (i) General Category States (GCS); and (ii) Special Category States (SCS) and Union Territories (UT). It uses non-parametric Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and obtains the Technology Closeness Ratio (TCR), measuring whether the maximum output producible from an input bundle by a school within a given group is as high as what could be produced if the school could choose to join the other group. The major departure of this book is its approach to estimating technical efficiency (TE), which does not use a single frontier encompassing all the states and UT, as is done in the available literature. Rather, this method assumes that GCS, SCS and UT are not homogeneous and operate under different fiscal and economic conditions.

This book examines the policy shifts over the past three decades in the Indian education system. It explores how these shifts have unequivocally established the domination of neoliberal capital in the context of elementary education in India. The chapters in the volume: • Discuss a range of elementary education policies and programs in India with a focus on the policy development in recent decades of neoliberalism. • Analyse policy from diverse perspectives and varied vantage points by scholars, activists, and practitioners, illustrated with contemporary statistics. • Introduce the key curriculum, assessment, and learning debates from contemporary educational discourse. • Integrate the tools and methods of education policy analysis with basic concepts in education, like equality, quantity, equity, quality, and inclusion. A definitive inter-disciplinary work on a key sector in India, this volume will be essential for scholars and researchers of education, public policy, sociology, politics, and South Asian studies.

The success of the primary education system has a direct bearing on the upper primary, non-formal and adult and continuing education sectors; an efficient primary education system is expected to contribute significantly to total literacy: an appropriate rise in literacy levels improves the functioning of other systems of education. Effective delivery of primary education contributes to bettering India's HDI (Human Development Index), including our standing in the Human Development Index evolved by UNDP. This volume is a study of the District Primary Education Programme (DPEP) in one of the states of South India. It is a piece of policy evaluation research expected to contribute to the ongoing discussion of policy processes in primary schools. It specifically questions to what extent objectives such as access, retention, quality and equality are achieved by the implementation of the DPEP. Figures from before and after the implementation of the DPEP show a significant increase in enrolment levels in primary schools all over the state. Thus, the major impact of DPEP implementation is seen in enhanced access to primary schools. The study shows that the DPEP implementation succeeded in attaining the objective of equality. This can be observed from gender equality in dropout rates at various primary grades. The DPEP seems to have achieved only moderate success in meeting the objective of retention of students. The DPEP does not seem to have approached the quality objective very seriously.

This volume examines key aspects of the elementary education system in the poorer and educationally backward states of India. Providing the first state by state analysis of major cost and financing issues, the book is based on data gathered from one of the most comprehensive surveys conducted in recent times, which was specifically commissioned for this book. In a country where administrative records-concerning enrolment, drop-out, retention and repetition-are unreliable as a source of data, surveys and analyses of the type reported in this volume help policy-makers and scholars get a better picture of the ground realities.

This book analyses the magnitude of public expenditure on education, the composition of such expenditure, the flow of funds from the Centre to the districts, and the bottlenecks in the process, with a focus on elementary education. Most of the existing body of work in this area concentrates on Central Government`s budgetary provisions instead. The significance of this research lies in that it dwells on the major challenges confronting the States with regard to these issues. Public Provisioning for Elementary Education in India focuses on elementary education in the context of the ongoing efforts towards Universalising Elementary Education (UEE) in the country. The book tracks budget expenditures and budgetary and planning processes in the current flagship programme of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) across the four selected States of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat and Rajasthan. It addresses the causes of the fiscal crisis in States in the era of economic reforms, and the policy measures required for improving the flow of public expenditure on education. This book offers important insights for policymakers, academia and social activists interested in `Input—Process—Output—Impact` of State intervention in the education sector in general and elementary education in particular.

Ever since it was first written into the new nation’s Constitution in 1950, achieving universal elementary education has proved an elusive goal for India. Caroline Dyer’s book looks at the failure of the Operation Blackboard scheme to establish a minimum norm of essential facilities for primary schools but argues that, in spite of its failure, the scheme has been rich in important policy lessons. She considers two in particular. First, that the prevailing view of implementation is deeply flawed – the evidence shows it is not something straightforward, following on automatically from the policy blueprint. The second is that teachers are central to meaningful educational change and must understand the hows and whys of changes if they are to implement them. The lessons she draws are of service to policy-makers and administrators in all educational contexts.
