Education

Education is the launchpad for a better future. How is the current status of implementation of School Sector Reform Plan? How can the education system be truly inclusive and accessible to all, including persons with differently abilities? How to improve the level of accountability at school level? How to ensure that District Education Offices, Resource Persons are really able and (willing) to perform their job? How can we truly implement a "quantum leap" in terms of quality of education?

Do you have any good practices to truly enhance the training and overall qualification of the teachers? How can we really ensure a systemic change in the educational system if the teachers themselves are the "product" of a failing methodology? How can we ensure that those who teach are really passionate about their job? Do you know about win win situation that can harness the power of local communities in delivering quality based education?
What's about the role of private sector learning providers? Can they be involved in devising a new system of accreditation where community run schools can work in synergies with private sector providers? What's about quality assurance mechanisms?
