bring their own utensils for midday meals to keep school utensils “unpolluted” and reprimanded and punished routinely. as long as they were unaware of each others’ social background. However when the students’ caste was publicly announced the performance of the two groups of students started to differ Further when caste was publicly announced and the children were segregated the Dalit students’ performance worsened significantly This confirms a well-known result from across the world: when social identity is made salient stigmatised individuals are reminded of negative stereotypes against them and this reminder shifts their behaviour in the direction of the stereotype US studies show that when race or gender is made salient before a difficult mathematics or reasoning test blacks and women perform worse The HRW report reminds us that caste tribal and religious status is invoked repeatedly in schools It is no wonder therefore that the average performance of Dalit Adivasi and Muslim children tends to be worse than their upper-caste peers However the lower performance is used as the basis to put one more pejorative stamp on them: that of incompetence This has an impact on their adult lives All economies regardless of how rich or poor are characterised by gaps in wages or earnings across social groups The strong belief that markets are essentially meritocratic or should be leads to the conclusion that if markets are allocating jobs the more capable individuals would be rewarded placing them in more prestigious and higher paying jobs Thus those earning more are assumed to be more able and those earning less in comparable jobs are assumed to have inferior “characteristics” In most instances though part of the earnings gap (say between men and women in similar occupations or between upper-castes and Dalits) can’t be accounted for by differences in characteristics This is taken as a broad measure of labour market discrimination What the HRW report underscores is that the process of formation of these characteristics — acquisition of education skills — is marked by continuous discrimination stigmatisation and marginalisation By making social identity salient at every opportunity the school community is ensuring that Dalit Adivasi and Muslim children underperform compared to their ability Thus the so-called explained part of the wage gap embodies within it a long legacy of discrimination that economists refer to as “pre-(labour) market discrimination” Estimates of labour market discrimination then end up underestimating economic discrimination to which we need to add wider social discrimination and atrocities to get the full range of constraints and obstacles that hinder individuals from stigmatised groups from expressing their full potential The evidence serves as a grim reminder that discrimination is not a thing of the past and not confined to rural areas It is perpetuated in the present and in urban settings where caste is supposed to be anonymous and irrelevant and where markets are meritocratic There is no reason to believe that India’s integration into the global economy will automatically weaken discriminatory tendencies as the richest and fully market-driven economies in the world are marked by discrimination Casteism is alive and repeatedly continues to assert its presence pointing to an urgent need for a strong anti-discriminatory framework backed by strict laws and political will governing not only employment and higher education but also primary schooling The writer is
