Overview

Hossain presents a fine-grained and humanized analysis of the collision between the formal and the social, political, religious, and economic environment in Bangladesh. This book provides a qualitative study of the effects of administrative modernization in elementary schooling in Bangladesh through the use of interview data and the highly personalized accounts of the research participants. The author goes beyond the understanding of the problem to an exploration of what is needed to alleviate the dysfunctions and, subsequently, provides an excellent resource for those involved in institutionally-driven change in developing countries. Selected Contents: The Historical and Political Context; Historical Background; Methodology; The Social Context of Bangladesh; The Traditional Villagers: Practices and Values; Rupishi Upazila Parishad; The Upazila Parashid and Resource Administration; Bilash Nagar State Primary School; Modern Systems and Traditional Culture; Glossary; List of Tables.
