School Choice Campaign (SCC) is a policy reform initiative of Centre for Civil Society (CCS) that aims to move India’s education system towards a school choice model that brings affordable and quality education of choice to all children.

SCC is organising its fifth annual School Choice National Conference on Friday, 20 December 2013 at The Multi–Purpose Hall, India International Centre, New Delhi, India.

SCNC will provide a much needed platform to identify critical issues in the education sector, review existing programs, explore strategies to face the challenges ahead and ideate on ingenious solutions to provide quality education to all children in India.

The theme of the conference this year is “Education 2025: Student First!”

The children of the 21st Century have a different ask from our education system than the generations that have preceded them. This is a generation which is constantly seeking, thinking, formulating, exploring and challenging their own views and opinions. Ten years from now, these children will be in positions of power in diverse sectors, dictating the direction of our country and economy.

We need a system that puts the child at the centre of education and facilitates the shift from rote learning to student understanding. This requires us to constantly re-examine education in terms of institutions, pedagogy and methodology. We must break from our conventions and rethink the kind of teachers, the curriculum and the kind of school leadership in effect–a rethinking of the school space. These changes are not possible without structural changes at a policy level that will both facilitate and reinforce them.

The objectives of the Conference in 2013 are to:

  • Bring together educationists and educational planners, policy experts, activists and government officials to discuss and debate existing policies and share their vision for what education should be in 2025 and;
  • Showcase innovative policy solutions–both national and international–that are being implemented to address current challenges in the Indian education ecosystem

The School Choice National Conference 2013 aims to explore this theme through expert presentations and plenary discussions with leaders in the education space.

The three key sessions we will be hosting are:

  • Vision 2025: Changing the Paradigms of Education
  • Practice 2025: Teaching for Understanding
  • Action Plan 2025: Rethinking Policy

Dinner Talk:
