Schooling for Social Change offers fresh perspectives on the emerging field of human rights education in India. 60 years after independence, the Indian schooling system remains unequal. Building on over a year of fieldwork, including interviews and focus groups with policymakers, educators, parents and students, Monisha Bajaj examines different understandings of human rights education at the levels of policy, pedagogy and practice. She provides an in-depth study of the origins and effects of the Institute of Human Rights Education, a non-governmental program that operates in over 4,000 schools in India.This enlightening book offers an instructive case study of how international mandates and grassroots activism can work together.Bajaj shows how the Institute of Human Rights Education has gained significant momentum for school-based adoption, textbook reform, and policy changes in a nation-state still struggling to ensure universal access to education. Schooling for Social Change provides a wealth of analysis from the frontlines of education reform and will be of interest to all those working in international and comparative education, human rights, and South Asian development.

About the Author:

Monisha Bajaj is Associate Professor of Education in the Department of International and Transcultural Studies at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Review:

"Professor Bajaj has done a most impressive multi-level study of a major human rights education program in India. She traces her case from the national level down to individual teachers and students. The book will be essential for those interested in civics and human rights education as these fields evolve in developing countries. It will also be of great interest to students of Indian society and education more generally." John W. Meyer, Professor of Sociology, Emeritus, Stanford University
BOOK NEWS, Inc.

"Bajaj's inspiring story of human rights education in India demonstrates the transformative possibilities of schooling for some of the world's most marginalized youth. Based on extensive fieldwork, she shows how students themselves enact rights-based advocacy to change lives. This book is essential reading for human rights activists, educators, and students seeking to understand the dynamics of social exclusion and how youth and their 'coalitional agents' can alter patterns of structural violence." - Frances Vavrus, McKnight Presidential Fellow, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota

"In this major contribution to sparse scientific writing concerning human rights education, Monisha Bajaj helps us understand the complex and contradictory relationship between 'laws, liberties, and learning.' Not the mandates of the experts but the voices of the learned constitute the narratives of Indian activists' self-determination in devising  human rights learning strategies. This work should be of compelling interest for all the votaries of the right to human rights education as the most precious of all fundamental human rights." -Upendra Baxi, Professor Emeritus, University of Warwick and Delhi Â
