School Education

The primary role of education is to equip people with the right knowledge, skills, values and attitude to enable them to become active participants in transformation of society and live in harmony with each other. Education empowers people to lead a free and better quality of life.

Over last few years, impressive gains in access to education with near universal enrolment at the primary level have been made. This has largely been possible because of Government’s initiatives such as mid-day meal and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan. One of the world’s largest Mid-Day Meal program provides more than 100 million children school meals daily which has helped increase enrollments.

Young minds are India’s most prized and valued assets, and CII believes that both government and private sector institutions must frequently share best practices, find newer ways to shape young impressionable minds and improve learning outcomes.

To facilitate this, we are organizing the second edition of the Annual School Conference over August 9 in New Delhi. The HRD Minister has been invited as the chief guest for this conference. Key policy makers and industry & academic leaders are also invited in this conference. The challenges facing an education system that caters to the learning needs of over 300 million children need thrashing out at the highest level, and the conference will give a unique opportunity to its audience to benefit from the insights shared by the leaders in the sector.

The focus sessions will cover multiple issues such as: The Role of Assessments in Improving the Quality of Education; Flipped Classrooms and the Role of Teachers; The Importance of Skill-based Education; and The Role of Schools in Promoting Healthy Eating Habits in Children.
