Culmination Event for the First Phase of the School Choice Campaign

On the 26 November 2008, Allahabad witnessed a congregation of representatives from 40 partner NGOs, School Choice advocates, prominent members of the ruling Bahujan Samajwadi Party and other supporters inside the Collectorate and High Court premises. Over 500 delegates were present at the culmination event of the first phase of mass campaign in Uttar Pradesh, many of whom had traveled from other districts.

In the first phase, partner organizations in the state had reached out to hundreds of thousands of people to create awareness about School Choice ideas and, in the process, collected around 12,50,000 signature petitions from citizens in support of the School Choice Campaign. Honorable Chief Minister Shrimati Mayawati’s announcement that School Vouchers will be introduced in all those areas of the state where access to a school is difficult is an important victory to the campaign. At the culmination event, the speakers sought more support for School Choice ideas and the speedy implementation of the plan announced by the Honorable Chief Minister. The event served as a platform for the hundreds of supporters in the state to meet and share their campaign experiences and received wide media coverage.
