We would like to thank all the chapter authors who took out time from their busy schedules and contributed to the book. Without their submissions, it would have been impossible to present the exact condition and position of teachers within the Indian education system. We would also like to thank the State Forums in Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttarakhand and Delhi, for their whole-hearted support in making the state level consultations a success. Almost all the consultations witnessed a participation of about two hundred participants, comprising not only teachers and teacher’s union representatives but community based organisations, School Management Committee (SMC) members, educationists, state representatives and rights based activists. We would also especially like to thank East and West Education Society (Bihar), LEADS (Jharkhand), Sikshasandhan (Odisha), SARD (Delhi) and Aman (Uttarakhand) for providing organisational and logistics support during the state consultations. Lastly, we thank all the participants who participated in the consultations and shared their experiences with us.
