Engaged teachers: Enhancing quality in education - Learning from the field


"Oxfam India’s Programme Implementation Plan (PIP) 2010-15, highlights the issue of segmentation in the education sector in India due to a dual system in place, where the higher education and technical sectors are in a separate elite category with some of the leading institutions making efforts to meet standards of global competitiveness, and ‘the elementary education sector, especially mass elementary education provided by the government school system, is not given the same preferential treatment’. The ‘private schools that feed into higher and technical education institutions are encouraged and government schools whose students are unlikely to make it to these institutions are given short shrift almost replicating the caste-based hierarchies prevalent all around us.’"
