it's a good study and strongly questions ' theory of change'. but its findings are limited to cognitive achievements . thus one could derive that learning deficiencies are attributed to the competence, merely . but competence itself or for that matter, merit itself is also outcome of cultural capital ,which is acquired by well to do children through a privileged socialization and selective exposure . if study could have focused on socio- economic status of children also , then perhaps we could have substantial insight (s)to explore the construction of laggards by the prevailing discourse of evaluation. deependra baghel bhopal

Thanks for sharing your article. Has any attempt been made to get States to get to comment? It would be useful to post their views so that they do not feel that opinions expressed are in any way biased or skewed. I am worried that if half the children are two years behind then a Class 9 student would be actually Class 7 and would be taking a board examination for the first time in another two years at the end of Class 10. This has serious consequences for the secondary stage as well. Keep writing. Regards. Champak Chatterji

We can try to solve this problem in this way. This is just my personal opinion. According to this article approximately 100 million children of age group 6-14 are two standard below their expected levels. So, approximately 50 million children of age group 6-10 are two standard below their grade levels. Approximately they come from 25 million families, expected to be below poverty line. It is supposed that these children do not get any support for the education from their parents. We may start from the beginning. When a children comes to school in stander one, check his ability. If he or she is below the level, check his or her mother’s ability. If the mother is also in the same situation ask his or her mother to attend the same class and help the children in home with personal care. The central government should pay some money (approximately 50 rupees /2-3 hours) to the mother. There should be yearly exam for the mother in the school level and district level. If some mother cannot make at least 50% of the expected learning, then government should give special care to those particular children. Government need to spend 45000 crore rupees (total budget expenditure 2013-14 is 16.68 trillion INR) per year for those 25 million mothers, But I hope this scheme can give a fruitful result to our country.
