Pedagogies for Development : The Politics and Practice of Child-Centred Education in India Hardback
Part of the Education in the Asia-Pacific Region: Issues, Concerns and Prospects series
Pedagogies for Development takes a sociological approach to examine the introduction of child-centred education in contemporary Indian policy and school contexts.
It investigates the promise of democratic learning in development discourses to ask how far child-centred models can address poverty and social inequalities in rural Indian communities.
Drawing on in-depth ethnographic research conducted in the south Indian state of Karnataka, the book offers a multi-level analysis of international, national and state education practices of pedagogic reform.
The book contributes to pressing debates about how `quality' education should be conceptualised and assessed in development contexts, and brings into focus the assumptions which associate schooling to social justice.
