Redressing Teachers' Grievances

A Study of Eight States

The process of redressing grievances of public sector employees has received little systematic attention, despite the large volume of such litigation. This article attempts to address this gap through an analysis of the role courts play in redressing grievances of teachers in government and government-aided schools. The possibility of alternative grievance redressal forums that could serve as more effi cient and accessible alternatives to high courts is also explored.

This article is based on a study conducted by the Centre for Law and Policy Research, commissioned and funded by the World Bank and part of a larger study being undertaken by the National University for Education Planning and Administration on the working conditions of teachers in 10 states in India. NUEPA’s report from the study is forthcoming. The full text of the report from CLPR’s study is available online (http://clpr.org.in/grievance-redressalfor- teachers-through-the-courts-a-reportprepared- for-the-world-bank/). The fi ndings, interpretation and conclusions expressed in this article do not necessarily represent those of the World Bank.
