This case study analyses the first social audit of education carried out in India, under the aegis of the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR). It was conducted as a pilot project across ten states of India, based on the principle that citizens can act as effective monitors of their own entitlements. The study itself is part of a series of case studies commissioned by IIEP under its open government in education research, and as part of its global capacity-building programme on Ethics and Corruption in Education.
