October 26, 2015

Given the context of much-needed pressure to improve the quality of our schools and ensure our children learn, NUEPA, in partnership with the World Bank, initiated a study to understand the working conditions of elementary and secondary school teachers in nine states of India. These include Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.

Listen to Vimala Ramachandran (above) talk about this study that focuses on teacher management in government schools across categories. She talks about the efficiency and transparency of the government system in recruiting and deploying teachers, and whether these practices are informed by policies.
