Grade Level: 6-12+
Breaking the grip of discrimination!
Madhusudana Rao wasn’t going to let the circumstances of his birth limit him.
Born a Dalit, the lowest of castes, the “outcasts” in India, he lived in desperate poverty. His entire family worked hard, doing difficult physical labor, walking miles a day, so that he and his brother could get an education.
The family expected Madhusudana to get a low-level government job through programs designed to help Dalits, but in reality, there were few job openings. Instead, Madhusudana seized an opportunity...
Now he and his family are No Longer OutCastes. He’s an amazing example of how millions in India have been lifted from poverty and are breaking the grip of discrimination.
No Longer OutCastes covers numerous educational standards across several subject areas including Social Studies and Language Arts for grades 6-12. To find which standards it covers specific to your grade, subject area, and which standards your district follows, use our Standards Alignment tool.
