More than half of the applicants who wanted to participate in the one-day workshop on India for teachers on March 3 could not be accommodated.

“It was incredible. We could have had twice as many people if we had the space,” said Peter Gilmartin, associate program director with Primary Source, a nonprofit that organized the workshop in cooperation with the South Asia Initiative at Harvard. “We had to turn away more than half the people who called us up as individuals. ... One teacher could come [only] because another teacher from Acton couldn’t come.”
