For A Study To Evaluate The Impact Of Prajayatna's Schooling Program In India

This supplemental grant would fund researchers from the Center for International Development at Stanford University to extend their evaluation of grantee Movement for Alternatives and Youth Awareness’ (MAYA) intervention to support over 2,000 communities across the state of Karnataka, India to exercise greater authority over their schools. A number of factors caused MAYA to delay implementation of its program. As a result, an extension of the evaluation will be critical to analyze whether MAYA’s governance intervention increases community involvement in education and whether increased community involvement ultimately improves schools and students’ learning outcomes. The evaluation results are expected to inform educators and those who work on governance by examining the effect of community institutions on schooling, and what factors enable collective action.
