“Transforming Schools for Quality Education", April 12- 14, 2013 || New Delhi

Exchange of international best practices in education to enable systemic reform for India

New Delhi. 12 April. About 100 International and national education experts are meeting at a 3-day conference on “Transforming Schools for Quality Education”, as part of a project which is pioneering systemic reform in India’s education. Save the Children, in collaboration with the National University of Educational Planning and Administration, has organised the conference which started today. They are deliberating on improving the quality of education in India based on the learning’s drawn from best practices identified through national and global research in the areas of School Leadership, Learning and Teaching Standards and Inclusion. The project “Exchange of International Best Practices Leading to Innovation in Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA)”, is funded by the European Union (EU), and has been implemented since July 2010 in India. 

This international conference brings together participants from state education departments across India, international education representatives from Australia, Finland, Thailand, Malaysia and UK, international agencies, research organizations and academics. “This conference provides an unique platform for Indian officials to meet with global experts in various spheres of education to gain from their knowledge and experience which can contribute to the pioneering work that has been initiated under this project,” said Harpal Singh, chairman of Save the Children, while welcoming the delegates at the conference.

Rajarshi Bhattacharya, Secretary, Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development, highlighted “the cycle of accountability needs to cut across the other three strands of school leadership, inclusivity and equity”. He applauded the fact that the project is helping to create leaders at the school level, which is perhaps the first step towards reforming the system.

“The overall objective of the project is to support the Government of India in achieving the quality targets of the SSA, through an exchange of international best practices and therefore this conference is an important step for  us,” explained Prof. Govinda, Vice Chancellor, National University of Educational Planning and Administration, who is also the Chairman of the project’s National Steering Committee. Save the Children is the implementing agency of the project which is spearheading reform in education based on exchange of best practices across Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan, Delhi, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Study visits by senior Indian education officials to UK, Finland, Thailand and Australia resulted in the states undertaking reforms in the following three areas:  School Leadership, School Standards: teaching and learning and Inclusive Practices. At this conference of course, the experts have been brought to India so that their insights can be shared with more officials.

Save the Children works in 120 countries around the world and in 15 states of India and education is one of the four main thematic areas of its work, which also include health, protection and emergencies and disaster risk reduction.
