ABSTRACT. The educational reforms of the last decade in India have been rapid and expansive. It would seem that insufficient money, poorly trained manpower, and unproductive materials might once again halt these ambitious reforms. This paper argues that in some ways these problems – money, manpower, and materials – have been addressed, or are being addressed, and discusses how this will contribute to the shape of the Indian education system in the 21st century. By examining the Indian socio-political landscape for what is available, as opposed to pointing to what is absent, this paper hopes to illuminate what Indian educational reformers – government, non-government, and academic – can do as they move beyond the narrative of capacity building and towards the next chapter in India’s story: educational quality. pp. 65–75

Keywords: Indian education, money, manpower, material, reformer
