While much of the research on resource allocation in the past has been concerned with state and national decisions, this book focuses on resource allocation decisions at the micro-level in education. Decisions made at the district, school, and classroom levels determine the adequacy and equity of resources actually made available to educational programs and individual students. This book shows how and why these decisions are made and their impact on schools and students.

The complex politics of English as a world language provides the backdrop both for linguistic studies of varieties of English around the world and for postcolonial literary criticism. The present volume offers contributions from linguists and literary scholars that explore this common ground in a spirit of open interdisciplinary dialogue.Leading authorities assess the state of the art to suggest directions for further research, with substantial case studies ranging over a wide variety of topics - from the legitimacy of language norms of lingua franca communication to the recognition of newer post-colonial varieties of English in the online OED.Four regional sections treat the Caribbean (including the diaspora), Africa, the Indian subcontinent, and Australasia and the Pacific Rim.Each section maintains a careful balance between linguistics and literature, and external and indigenous perspectives on issues. The book is the most balanced, complete and up-to-date treatment of the topic to date.

English literature is studied, at some stage or the other, by almost every middle- and upper-class person in India. Its importance as a discipline, or as a body of texts, that shapes the minds, attitudes, behaviour and social aspirations of India's educated urban elites - who occupy powerful positions in government, business and industry - is often fundamental and certainly undoubted. Yet some of the most basic questions about English literary studies in India - such as their relevance and validity, their social functions, their institutional contexts, their pedagogic and publishing practices - are never posed. This volume, taken as a whole, breaks the long silence and asks why. It comprises seventeen essays, fourteen of which are by women academics. Collectively, they seek to show up the sorts of conservative orthodoxies, bureaucratic power structures, fossilized thought processes, unacademic institutions, colonial worldviews, outdated theoretical frameworks, gross cultural premises and crassly commercialized situations which frequently define what it means to study and teach English literature in India. The essays appear in eight sections; the first has two pieces which situate English within British and post-Independence India; the second has an essay on teaching English in the colonial context; the third has one on teaching it today. The fourth section focuses on three widely-prescribed English literary texts and analyses Indian classroom responses to these. The fifth section examines ideological and business contexts: an essay on publishing outlines the markets for anthologies, textbooks and monographs; another essay provides a critique of England's mediations in India via theBritish Council. The sixth section looks at the broad types of students and teachers that exist in university departments of English, as well as at the attitudes, aspirations and academic situations that commonly prevail. The seventh section has a piece on the sorts of intellectual resistance that dominate Indian academia, specifically the resistance to those new and changing parameters of thinking about English literature which question both the sacred canon of Eng. Lit. and the professorial guardians of that canon. The final section has essays on the position of English in a post-colonial society, and on the desirability of using linguistic tools to penetrate the paradigms of literary criticism. An annexure on landmarks in Indian education policy serves as conclusion. The contributors to this volume are all Indian academics who have taught English in the country's major universities, and some of whom are now highly - reputed expatriate professors of English in the West. Their book is a pioneering attempt to situate, define, analyse, historicize, destabilize and problematize the study of English in India. This volume will seem invaluable to teachers and students of sociology, history, colonialism and culture, and to all who teach or study English literature anywhere in the world.
