Is Price Surge Justified?

'No detention' policy under Right to Education Act (RTE) requires promoting a child without ensuring learning outcomes and raises concerns of dropout rates, demoralization of the students etc. Now the question arises: Are only zero-sum outcomes of detaining and compelling a child to repeat the grade or promoting the child without attaining requisite learning the only options? Does this call for a pedagogical transformation? Is early remedial intervention within a system of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) a feasible alternative?

Is Price Surge Justified?

Recently, India has been witnessing a vulture of ban. Starting from banning of books, documentaries, to movies, and now …the liquor ban in Kerala and Bihar. This brings the larger debate, do bans actually work? Is banning liquor in Kerala and Bihar a necessary decision? Or a throwback to the prohibition of 1970s USA which effectively brought in the culture of bootleggers?
