Field Practice in Education

Understand the largest school system in India ground-up, through immersion

in the field

What does schooling in India entail? Particularly, what does public schooling entail? A theoretical view on Education is incomplete and insufficient without a practical exposure to the challenges and opportunities that government schoolteachers and government functionaries at different levels of the education system navigate on a daily basis. We will take you to regions across India where you will immerse yourself in such contexts and engage with a wide variety of people. You will learn about key goals, policies and provisions in education, as well as structures and processes that shape the government school system. You will also learn about the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders in the system, as well as their inter-relationships with families, parents and the local community. You will gain a nuanced perspective and learn to ask important educational questions.
