About CORD

Collaborative Research and Dissemination (CORD) is an independent education research group that seeks to articulate the problems of the disadvantaged through field-based research. CORD endeavours to influence policy and public opinion by making its research findings accessible to the public. CORD's research dates back to 1994, when a larger team of researchers from various universities and institutions came together to bring out a public report on the status of basic education in India. The outcome was the publication of PROBE (Public Report on Basic Education, OUP-Delhi, 1996) in English and later in Hindi.

Over the years, CORD's research interest has extended beyond education to health, skills training, labour issues, among others.

CORD was officially registered as a trust in May 2003. CORD's primary research interest has been education. Research projects include the status of elementary schooling.
