Nomads and Education for All: Education for Development or Domestication?
Dyer, Caroline
Comparative Education, v37 n3 p315-27 Aug 2001
In Gujarat, India, illiterate Rabari nomads see formal education and literacy as irrelevant to pastoralism, but as providing possible alternatives if the pastoral life dies. Access and school culture present many difficulties. The hegemonic values of the international initiative Education for All and associated national policies ignore the importance of local knowledge and context. (Contains 49 references.) (SV)
