Class Divided: Global Pressures, Domestic Pulls and a Fractured Education Policy in India
Tukdeo, Shivali
Policy Futures in Education, v13 n2 p205-218 Feb 2015
Interdisciplinary scholarship in recent years has begun to pay attention to the state (re) formation in India under neoliberal conditions. The particularities of this transformation have arisen from the points of re-imagination of the relationship between the post-colonial state and global capital. Working through the contradictions and conflicts embedded in the social life of policy, this paper examines two policy initiatives: the Right to Education (RTE) Act (2009) and the Foreign Institutions Entry, Operations and Regulation Bill (2010). The overlaps, differences and tensions around the two policies allow for a perspective that understands the changing role of education in the transformation of the state.
