6. Research Project on the Primary Schools of Pune Municipal Corporation

The School has undertaken a research project on the primary schools conducted by the Pune Municipal Corporation. The study has been initiated with effect from September 2005 after receiving the permission of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and the Municipal Education Board for accessing the relevant original records of the PMC and for administering the proposed tests to the sample students. The twin objectives of the said study are:

  • To record, analyse and study the trend of enrolment in every class in all types of schools during the last thirty years.

  • To investigate the level of education at the primary level. This inquiry would involve understanding of aspects such as students’ ability in reading, writing and arithmetic.

A Seminar based on the reports of the Associate Researchers was held on July 30-31, 2008 and detailed deliberations were held. Based on the same, a draft of the Final Report had been submitted by the Associate Researchers. Shri Abhay Tilak and the Prof. Rath read the drafts. Both of them came to the conclusion that it would not be useful to ask for further revision of the drafts. Instead, they agreed that Shri Tilak shall do the work of revising the drafts for publication. The work on finalising the report in Marathi is complete while that of translating the same into English is nearing completion.
