"Keeping Up with the Time": Rebranding Education and Class Formation in Globalising India
Sancho, David
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v14 n4 p477-491 2016
This paper investigates the emergence of "internationalised" schools as a form of middle-class aspiration in Kochi, India. It complements recent literature on the growth of international schools catering for host country elites, and shows how private schools are actively engaged in extending the aspiration for internationalised education among the city's middle classes. The article shows how internationalised schooling has penetrated beyond Indian metropoles into secondary cities. It provides a detailed ethnographic account of how a private school has rebranded itself as an "internationalised" school, involving the introduction of new practices and the repackaging of the school's old nationalist project.
