Our research explores how far the growth of secondary schooling is changing patterns of social inequality and social exclusion in rural western Uttar Pradesh (UP). We are concerned with class, caste, community and gender dimensions of inequality and exclusion. The Economic and Social Research Council [grant number R000238495], Ford Foundation and Royal Geographical Society funded aspects of our research and Swaleha Begum, OP Bohra, Shaila Rais, Chhaya Sharma and Manjula Sharma provided research assistance in western UP.
