Good Schools Of India

Guide to good schools of India
Sandeep Dutt’s compilation,
Guide to Good Schools of India, now in its seventh edition, is a useful handbook. It is helpful, of course, to parents, at whom it is primarily directed. Education—and when I say education in this context, I mean private education—is booming in India. Drive through any small to big town or city in India, and you will see evidence of the boom. From paper leaflets to huge billboards, the advertising of new schools is relentless. Some people are offended by this. I must admit to a degree of discomfort at the way that we are assailed by the arrival of a new school. Yet, what is undeniable and heartening is that this is evidence of the boom in education—and in the long run that can only be good. More schools mean more opportunities and choices for India’s children and parents.

Dutt’s Guide to Good Schools of India is not just a useful handbook for parents. It is also a good starting point for education professionals—teachers, principals, school management, and officials and other policymakers—and the general public that might be interested in such matters. I looked through the pages of the volume with a fair degree of curiosity: which are these other good (residential) schools of India apart from the ones that quickly come to mind? What do the old and new schools offer?  How much are we all the same, and how much do we differ? Dutt has not written a PhD thesis on these issues, but he has given education professionals a tantalising peek into the fast-changing world of residential schools.
