School Education in Ladakh:Responses to People’s Aspirations is an account of an education reform initiative in Ladakh — called Operation New Hope; it is also an account of the growth of an organization — Students’Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL). The narrative account, often mixed with reflective comments, is almost a journey in the life of a civil society group that recognized limits to partnership with local self-governance processes. The limits are often laid down by the benefits that the governance processes can sight in the work of a civil society group; sharp boundaries are drawn at “points of embarrassment” that the civil society incursions into development management can create for any constituent of the governance processes. Manpower engaged for the governance processes readily slips into state of fossilization of old behaviours; any new behaviours advocated by civil society action constitute a threat.
It is heartening though that the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council embraced the Operation New Hope as a concept and as a system; the regret still lies in the fact that the civil society group could not find continuing space for its work.

First of all i would like to appreciate mittal publication for publish such a great book regarding education in ladakh .Ladakh is the one of the remotest area of our country hailing in the state of Jammu and Kashmir .Education system in ladakh is very week mostly in govt schools .As such some private institutions trying their best to give education to children by marks not by knowledge that's why student face problems when they face higher classes .The main reason behind this is lack of good and well teacher in schools .In ladakh most of the students migrate outside like Jammu Chandigarh Delhi and many corners of the country for searching well education because of the lack of educational facilities in ladakh .They are not going by their choice but students are compelled to go outside for education Govt of J&k and Lahdc failed to provide educational facilities in ladakh which the students must need in this generation .Still this trend is continues in ladakh .
