Rukmini Banerji

Rukmini has been the intellectual driving force behind the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER – which also means “action” in Hindi), which is a continental scale citizen based assessment of learning, dealing with over 600,000 children each year. Through its scale, annual persistence and bottom-up citizen/volunteer/NGO partnership implementation, ASER has changed the fundamental nature of debate about learning in India.
