MetadataShow full item record
"What opportunities can a new UK-designed primary school offer the children and teachers of Delhi, despite its neocolonial overtones? This is the broad and driving question of this paper, and in order to explore it, I posit a number of sub-questions which my paper will approach more directly: What are the historical, political and sociological conditions that allowed this school project to appear in Delhi 2015? What is the pedagogy and educational philosophy of Ark, the charity who founded this school project? How does it work in Delhi? How do the teachers feel about enacting the rubric of this school project? Do they think it is what is best for the children? How can Ark and the teachers in India work together to build a suitable school for the underprivileged children of Delhi?"
