Recognising the significance of parental voice in steering policy decisions in education, and its marginal influence in the extant policy-making process in India, the Parents Forum for School Education (PFSE) was established by the Centre for Civil Society (CCS) in November 2017. The forum has been conceptualised as a national platform to bring together the parents of students in private schools to advocate for systemic reforms in education.
This July, we conducted nine meetings across five states, reaching out to over 340 parents and engaging them on the concerns of school-level and systemic reforms for quality education. With 340 new members joining the PFSE in July, we now have a membership of 370 parent-leaders. Through trainings and capacity-building for effective advocacy, the forum will mainstream parental voice in education, and nurture the parent-leaders to steer policy reforms that may foster better schools and better learning for their children.
