Taking Education Reform Ideas to the MHRD

We met with Rina Ray, Secretary, Department of School Education & Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development, to discuss the enduring crisis of learning in India, and to present our recommendations for learning-outcomes based school regulation. We also presented comprehensive policy blueprints on Direct Benefit Transfers and need for the separation of roles of the government as the financier, provider and regulator of education.

CCS has been committed to advancing reforms in education that promote choice, quality and accountability, keeping students first. Our principles of choice, efficiency and competition have informed our policy advocacy and we have worked consistently to shift focus from infrastructure to outcomes, to implement DBT as a tool to improve efficiency and accountability.
