On Education Guarantee Scheme in Madhya Pradesh Rahul GOPALAKRISHNAN and Sharma (G and S) have made tall claims in favour of the Education Guarantee Scheme (EGS) being run by the government of Madhya Pradesh (GOMP) (EPW, September 26, 1998). They assert that this scheme has gone a long way towards universalising primary education in tribal areas at a very low cost without compromising on quality, while at the same time empowering local communities to demand and get education for their children. The reality, however, is considerably more dismal and so the record needs to be set straight so as to ensure that the poor tribals of Madhya Pradesh (MP) are not short-changed by a typically publicity hungry administration.
