Abstract/Notes: India is one of the few countries with a century-long uninterrupted Montessori tradition, strengthened by Maria Montessori’s long stay there in the 1940s. The chapter traces the evolution of Indian Montessori in three phases: an ascendant first wave from 1915-1947, in which Montessori’s approach was aligned with the Indian independence movement; second, gradual growth between 1947 to 1989 as the method spread slowly in private schools, although some adapted Montessori programming expanded widely through rural government-funded preschools; and third, as India’s expanding middle class since 1989 has fueled private Montessori growth alongside public-private partnerships in Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Kerala that have increased the access of poor children to high-fidelity Montessori.

Alternative Paths to Primary Education in Rural India: Five Case Studies of GAA-Assisted Educational Projects

Available from: xasia Repository

Asia, India, South Asia

Abstract/Notes: This study analyses five educational projects in India that are supported by German Agro Action (GAA) and the European Union (EU) and are executed on the ground by Indian NGOs. Located in different geographical parts of India, the projects follow different ideological and pedagogical approaches. The study does not claim, especially given the size and diversity of Indian society, to represent the Indian educational situation as a whole. Rather, it intends to elucidate some alternative approaches adopted by the specific projects to overcome the existing shortcomings of the Indian primary educational system. Using a range of qualitative indicators pertaining to the educational philosophy of the organisations, their curriculum, pedagogy, relationship with the state, relevance, effectiveness etc. the study critically reflects on each of the project, each of which works in areas where educational facilities are not easily accessible. The study thus helps further understanding about how the deficiencies of primary education in India, with regard to the underprivileged sections of the Indian society in particular, can be innovatively addressed. It should be noted that all findings and interpretations are those of the study team and do not necessarily represent those of GAA.
