Quality schooling cannot be provided to all children in India based on the experience of the fantastic experiments of a few people. This requires millions of teachers who are the products of a not-so-good quality schooling and who may not be in their position out of a choice (but due to the non-availability of other desirable occupations). All efforts to improve the quality of schooling in India need to take cognisance of this reality. Hence, reforming schooling in India requires large scale actions and interventions, which are carried out often in not-so-perfect conditions. This may not be a task attractive to those who are enthralled by the success of their alternative schools.
