Congress, our Flag,works? The growing body of empirical evidence shows that the increased expenditures in education are not translating into better outcomes Yetthe Central government remains steadfastly focused on inputs and outputs and does not seem able or willing to bring issues of childrens learning to the centre of the stage either in policy or in practice There is no shift towards tackling the problem of low learning in a direct manner Nor is there any effort to understand how expenditures can be made more effective in terms of learning outcomes In a waythe provisions and norms of the RTE are used to justify the continued thrust on inputs Much of the substance of the results framework of the annual planning documents in elementary education continue to be concerned with infrastructureteacher recruitment and training There is only a fleeting mention of reporting of learning outcomes towards the fag end of the list In the SSA planning documentsthere are only two line items where states and districts can directly plan and implement learning improvement programmes if they should wish to do so These are (a) the innovation grant of Rs 1 crore per districtand (b) the learning enhancement programme Together these account for less than 1 per cent of the total education budget (and 3 per cent of SSA budget in 2010-11) Expenditure tracking efforts by Accountability Initiative indicate that these expenditures are slow and tend to happen towards the end of the financial year (which is also the end of the school year) Expenditure on teacher training is about 2 per cent of the total SSA budget in 2010-11 Given the current guidelines by Government of Indiait is not clear how a massive push for improvement of learning outcomes will be fuelledif at all the government at any level should want to do so The writing on the wall is clear and it is getting bigger and bolder each year Ordinary people are able to read it People are voting with their feet and trying to effectively use the resources they have to get the best education their money can buy But policy makers and planners and those who control the expenditure of public funds on education are either unable or unwilling to read this writing on the wall Without basic educationthe future of children is grim If 100 million children today do not get even the basic skills of reading and arithmeticit is unlikely that India will grow into a mature economy or a mature democracy The right to education promises many things In addition to teachers in every classdrinking waterboundary walls and so onit speaks of quality education at the appropriate age-grade for all children By just providing inputs we are not bringing in equity Unless the entire expenditure and the effort behind the provision of schooling is translated effectively into learning outcomesthe real battle for equal opportunity will be lost and our large and growing public expenditure in education wasted The writer works with Pratham and ASER Centre For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News The vehicle then crashed into a divider, Post that rally, says Vasudev. he said, PTI "Modi’s campaign in Amethi would have absolutely no impact, He alleged that Modi was contesting from Varanasi to polarise votes.

| Mumbai | Updated: April 12 2016 11:24 am Stephen Fleming was earlier the coach of CSK and now of Pune in the Indian Premier League (Source: PTI) Related News IN THE past as soon as an Indian coach’s contract was about to run out you would start hearing of starry names being linked to the job That isn’t the case this time A new trend that is emerging is to blame Now top-retired cricketers prefer to take up the reins of a T20 team or two rather than commit to a long-term year-long association with an international team You just have to look at the star-studded coaching staff roster across the IPL and compare it with what was on show during the World T20 It’s only understandable therefore when senior officials in the BCCI lament about the challenges of finding a full-time coach who is ready to sacrifice a majority of the year and also accept the inescapable scrutiny that comes with the responsibility Also Read:India cricket team players want Ravi Shastri back at thehelm Still somehow you weren’t overly surprised when Ricky Ponting was asked if he would consider that role during Mumbai Indians’ pre-tournament press-conference last Thursday Ponting already has an IPL title in his resume along with the enviable collection of prominent trophies that he lifted as Australia’s captain His response though was one that we’ve gotten used to hearing He spoke about not wanting to make a long-term commitment that would keep him away from his young kids at this stage of his life after having spent 18 years on the road Around the same time but at the other end of the venue Stephen Fleming was sipping coffee with a bunch of players The Kiwi who won two titles with Chennai Super Kings has been linked in the media with the India coach position for the last three years But he too has cited the extended time away from family as the major impediment A day earlier Delhi Daredevils mentor Rahul Dravid — another prime candidate for the vacant position — wondered whether he had the ‘bandwith’ or could ‘devote the time and energy’ required for the high-profile job And you can rest assured that as the IPL rolls on the likes of Jacques Kallis who took over at Kolkata Knight Riders this season and Daniel Vettori in his second season as Royal Challengers Bangalore head coach too will be put on the spot And it’s likely they too will turn it down The dearth of ‘celebrity’ coaches especially those with storied cricket careers in the international circuit is an unintended consequence of the ever-burgeoning number of T20 franchise tournaments Be it Mike Hesson with New Zealand Russell Domingo with South Africa or Trevor Bayliss with England it’s likely that you’ll find international teams with coaches who don’t lack in skill or accomplishment but certainly are without the star value that you will find aplenty in the T20 leagues It’s not always about the pay-cheque During his stint as India team director Ravi Shastri was reportedly paid Rs 7 crore which is a sum that is not likely to be matched in the IPL But for many the holistic challenges that come with coaching an international team are too taxing as compared to dealing with the less strenuous nature of being in-charge of a franchise It’s not like the axe doesn’t hang over their heads perennially here But they don’t have to face the anger of an entire nation Less scrutiny The stakes in T20s aren’t the same and they often tend to slip under the radar There are many buffers at hand the fickle nature of the format being one If anything an IPL coach generally comes to the fore when his team is winning but how often does he have to face the glar when his team’s on a losing streak In recent years we’ve also seen starry names who have taken the plunge with an international team eventually give up on it and turn to T20 leagues to continue their flings with coaching Gary Kirsten and Andy Flower are some of the examples Even the likes of Mickey Arthur and Paddy Upton prefer to be globe-trotting mentors trying to provide instant success for their employers rather than commit to shaping up a cricket nation’s future over an extended period of time a trend that is fast turning into a hardened reality
