Never a Dull Moment is an insider's narrative of a historic engagement with school education. From 1972 to 2002, people from the higher education institutions, scientists, teachers of government and private schools, administrators at all levels of the education bureaucracy, children from hundreds of villages and many small towns of Madhya Pradesh grappled with the what and how to teach in science. This resulted in an evolving model of science education suited to the realities of ordinary middle schools in India.
What troubled their minds and what did they strive for? How did they dovetail reforms in examinations and teacher trainings to the new thrusts of the path-breaking curriculum? Over the years chapters acquired 'biographies', their lives shaped by field level feedback, emerging issues in academics and pedagogy. The book grapples with these and many more issues and documents the long, intense and most exciting academic journey of the Hoshangabad Science Teaching Programme (HSTP).
