CCS Dashboard#ccstalks TweetChat: ‘Free Basics: A step in the right direction?’, 06 January 2016


The proponents of Free Basics say that it is a step to extend connectivity to the poor. Equally strong arguments from the opposing side say that it is a corporate ploy to compartmentalise the internet. Should we support Free Basics, and is it a step in the right direction?

UnpackED – The black box of Indian school education reform

UnpackED – The black box of Indian school education reformThe previous decade brought a great visibility of learning class in India. In attempts to reform education, people made several attempts at small and large scales. The book synthesizes lessons from these attempts and debates across different strands of education  - assessments, pedagogy, governance etc., and argues that weak state capacity is the critical constraint in the school education reform currently. It also lists out the implications of weak state capacity - forcing us to settle for second-best solutions etc. The book then discusses the meaning of state capacity and frameworks to understand the same; as well as widely debated themes in education - decentralisation, incentives, private schools, and vouchers. Finally, it argues that if we are to improve any further, we must focus on enhancing state capacity and it must be made the priority.
