Currently I am taking a tour of UP for documenting UNICEF's work with the Polio vaccine in UP. One of the highlights of my trip has been learning about how the government schemes are implemented in the field.

I already knew that there is poor implementation of schemes in MCD schools in Delhi, the teachers aren't motivated, don't teach and generally don't care. They are government employees there for the security and the salary. The only reason they do any work is so the inspections go just fine.

In UP, the situation is worse. While a school in Delhi might at least end up education a few children, in many areas in UP, schools don't open till 10-11am, the time when the teachers and the peons finally deem it fit to arrive. Even when they are in school, there is no teaching done.

I learnt that the government ran a scheme called Shiksha Mitra, whereby the Village Education Committee can elect a para-teacher, someone who has cleared Intermediate or Higher Secondary exams. What is really happening is the indiscriminate hiring of illiterate people being paid a monthly stipend of Rs. 28,000/month and also protests to take it up to 32,000/month.

Even if India, instead of thinking of new and creative things to do in education, just bolstered its current capacity, and ensured that the system ran efficiently and responsibly, we would be closer to reaching our targets.

There's poor implementation.

The situation on the ground is far worse than any of these people allude to. It's not a best practices problem, it's the government work culture problem, and absolutely no motivation. That's the issue.
