Beschreibung

The commonsense understanding of `education` rests on the assumption that it has a straightforward positive value. In practice education is profoundly ambiguous in its effects. By focusing on `educational regimes`-and thereby locating values in a broad political terrain encompassing global, national and local contexts-this collection of original essays addresses numerous crucial issues. These include: whether educational regimes relate to other facets of contemporary India society; the extent to which they facilitate the values and ideals enshrined in the Constitution and in policy goals; and the implications of the differential impact of educational regimes on different social groups in India.

Pressestimmen

Educational Regimes in Contemporary India is a collective effort of a group of eminent sociologists and anthropologists…The book successfully holds the readers' attention in each of its inter-connected chapters by an intense deconstruction of crucial variables...The book validates an important finding that the differential outcome fro the differential social groups have mostly been determined by their Social capital in the country. The success of this volume lies at the basic fact that the authors make the readers think about the related issues simultaneously…This volume with its thorough analysis places the ethnography and social anthropology at the centre-stage. Hence it is special volume. Furthermore almost all the contemporary discourse and debate has been efficiently covered in this book. This carefully edited volume with lucid rigorous analysis becomes a precious work…this volume becomes an essential reading for the scholar in social science.
