Abstract

This paper is study of a co-educational, Hindimedium, government-run middle school in Indore in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. This was a classroom ethnography conducted with a class VIII classroom1 . I have taken a critical pedagogic2 approach to interrogating classroom processes and my discussion of language classrooms in this paper is framed by the assumption that education has a role to play in furthering equality and inequality, and social justice and injustice for learners and their communities.
