Abstract: The study sought to gauge the extent of decentralisation and devolution of power to community-based bodies in relation to schools, and see if there is any disconnect between what is envisaged and what is practiced. The study is limited to: Andhra Pradesh (AP-Medak District), Bihar (Gaya District), Jharkhand (Ranchi District), Odisha(Mayurbhanj District) and Uttar Pradesh (UP–Raebareli District). It focuses on the aspects of devolution of powers, capacity building, functioning of structures, convergence between structures, social inclusion, quality achieved through devolution of powers and potential dimensions of School-Community linkages that can be strengthened further. The study involved desk review of varied kinds of materials and an exploratory field based study in five states.
