Practices in the Primary Education Bureaucracy

I am grateful to my professors, Suraj Jacob and Narayana Gatty, for permitting me to conduct this independent study, and for their support and guidance. I am also grateful to Anuj Joshi, who carried out the fi eldwork jointly with me, and to his family for their assistance during our stay in Rajasthan. The fi eld study was facilitated by the Azim Premji Foundation offi ce in Sirohi, and I acknowledge the support of Rakesh Tewary, Ritesh Singh, Narenderji and other APF staff members. The anonymous reviewer’s comments and feedback on the paper were very useful. I have also benefi ted from Sujatha Rao’s comments on the paper and thank Udrina Dafton, the librarian at APU, for help in accessing journal articles. I also owe a big thank you to my parents and my friend Arjun Dutta, for their constant support and encouragement.
