This week was rather eventful with the mid- term presentation. It provided us much needed clarity of thought regarding our project. It also helped us gauge whether we were articulate in our ideas or not. We will also be submitting our mid- term rough draft of what we intend to write in our paper so that we get some idea about the structure of our paper and look forward to getting some valuable feedbacks regarding the same.
After the mid- term presentation, one of our group members (Dhriti) went to Uttarakhand to conduct further primary research for our project. She will be meeting school owners and a few government officials to get an in depth knowledge about our research. This week our further study will mainly concentrate on three points:
1. Understanding the school’s strength on the processing of reimbursement.
2. The problems faced by schools due to late reimbursement.
3. Identifying the gaps of the government’s machinery and school’s machinery causing delay in reimbursement.
Once this task is complete we will start collating data and prepare for our final term papers.
