MetadataShow full item record
India is yet to attain consistent improvement in the literacy rates of rural school-age children. Using a longitudinal study of a government school in the village Lakhnu, Uttar Pradesh, the thesis analyses the impact of educational support through the work of the non-resident association India Rural Education and Development (IREAD). A grounded theory is developed which explains that a major shift is difficult to achieve but IREAD’s contribution delivers small steps in the right direction.
