The Political Economy of Education in India: Teacher Politics in Uttar Pradesh

Geeta Kingdon (Author) Mohd. Muzammil (Author)
Synopsis This book explores the political economy factors that affect the administration of education. While there has been encouraging progress in some measures of education in the country during the 1990s, there is widespread concern about the continued parlous state of publicly funded education. Since no publicly funded education system can be free of political intervention, the authors examine the ways in which politics has impinged on the education sector, influenced the evolution of educational institutions, and shaped the legislation that now governs school education. In this context, the volume explores the role of politics and teacher unions in the state of Uttar Pradesh. It examines: The extent of and reasons for teachers’ participation in politics,The evolution and activities of teachers’ unions, The conflict of interests that makes teacher unions opposed to educational reforms, The constitutionally guaranteed representation of teachers in the upper house of the state legislature , The links to other factors such as the enactment of particular education acts,Teachers’ salaries and appointments, Teacher absenteeism and shirking. This book is an essential read for educational administrators and decision makers, donors such as UNICEF, the World Bank, and DFID, educational NGOs, and scholars of economics, education, political science, sociology, social work, public administration and development studies.
