The challenges arising out of our education system are multifaceted.
These range from high dropout rates, poor learning-levels, inequity in access to quality education, high prevalence of rote-learning, marks orientation, lack of accountability, and inadequate teacher preparation. These issues are systemic in nature and require deliberate, long-term, and sustained planning to build capacities and create public awareness and engagement.
We build the capacities of important actors in the school education system to bring about the desired reform. We firmly believe that education is an enabler of social change. We envision a democracy where every citizen is empowered, not only in an individual capacity but also in the ethics of equity, the essentiality of diversity, the ethos of justice, and is thus driven by social sensitivity. Schools are the spaces that nurture these principles, capabilities, and values.
Our notion of good education ensures the holistic development of the child in multiple dimensions to fulfil and expand their potential, as they become active, contributing, and concerned citizens of the world. Such multiple dimensions of development include cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and ethical abilities. Learning-to-learn, critical thinking, problem-solving, conceptual understanding, etc., are some of the other important facets of an exceptional education system.
