The universalisation of school education in India has altered the playing field, changing the expectations placed on teachers and schools to provide ‘quality’ teaching in the face of increasing diversification of the student population, growing privatisation of schooling, and what is frequently termed a ‘learning crisis’. In this context, this presentation explores some of the trends in school and teacher performance and classroom practices in two states in Southern India, using multilevel analysis of quantitative school survey data from the Young Lives study.
