Resource description

This paper examines developments in literacy and education in Palanpur. We consider schooling facilities and other related services available in this village and its neighbourhood. Schooling levels are analysed in the context of gender and social groups. Some obstacles for children and young people attempting to pursue education are discussed. Education levels and services are considerably lower than that of Moradabad district and Uttar Pradesh state averages. However there is evidence of major improvements in education in the last decade. In particular, the progress in education of girls and across social groups since the last Palanpur study in 1993 is noteworthy. The infrastructure, availability of teachers and other services in the school have also improved.
