Roles for School Psychologists in the Challenging Indian Education Landscape
Patwa, Shamim S.; Peverly, Stephen T.; Maykel, Cheryl; Kapoor, Vineeta
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v7 n2 p94-101 2019
India has very few school psychologists and school psychology as a discipline is almost non-existent. Further, the educational system in India, which is in great flux, has many needs that could be met by school psychologists. In this article, we discuss what roles school psychology could serve if the profession continues to develop in India. To provide a context for our proposal, we discuss the current state of education and education reform in India including the demographics of India that provide such a challenge to establishing universal, compulsory education, legislative initiatives for regular and special education, and the structure of schools and schooling.
