Culture and Classroom Reform: The Case of the District Primary Education Project, India.
Clarke, Prema
Comparative Education, v39 n1 p27-44 Feb 2003
The impact of the international donor-supported District Primary Education Programme on the thinking and actions of 234 primary school teachers in South India was influenced by four cultural constructs: "openness to regulation,""sense of duty," and views on social hierarchy and knowledge acquisition. Teachers were receptive to new methods presented in inservice training, but essential characteristics of traditional classroom practice changed little. (Contains 40 references.) (SV)
