At the Businessworld Education School Leaders' Conclave 2018, people from academia and policymakers came together to discuss contemporary challenges that the Education sector is grappling with.
Anil Swarup, Secretary-Ministry of Human Resources Development emphasized the fact that we need to devise our own education models rather than aping other countries models blindly. He said that our country has a lot of potential and resources and all we need to do is to identify the problems and suggest a practical solution. He said that even in rural India, our educators are walking an extra mile to deliver quality education. Therefore it is a time when we must put our act together and support such ideas which have a possibility to translate the disadvantages into success stories.
"We picked up a few models of educational reforms throughout the country and trying to understand that can other schools be benefitted", he added.
Swarup mentioned about a solar power-driven school in Chhattisgarh which was an idea of a teacher at a school in the same region.
He said that the adopted model now has been followed by at least 60,000 schools.
