Writing for The New Leam, Dolashree Mysoor analyzes education and the 2019 Lok Sabha election. In particular, she dissects the election manifestos of the BJP and INC and asks, “what do political parties have in store for school education in 2019?”
She analyzes both their 2014 and 2019 manifestos and identifies their underlying assumptions and key aims. She criticizes the BJP manifesto for taking as a starting assumption that India has already achieved equal access to education. While she is more optimistic about the INC manifesto, she notes that it is not pragmatic.
