Abstract

This telling case study examines a cluster school link project mainly funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) of the U.K. government through a local educational nongovernmental organization (NGOA) connecting schools in a county in the East Midlands in England with schools in a village in India. The project ran from 2000 to 2005. I was involved with this project in a professional capacity through NGOA from July 2004 to September 2005. This case study focuses on events that happened from July to December 2004 in this North-South partnership. The data includes official project documents, interviews with teachers, meeting notes, and professional communications. The analysis of data presents a telling example of potential outcomes of school linking based on liberal multicultural discourses, which relates both to postcolonial critique and the analyses of policies in chapters seven and eight.1
