There is a dire need for people who can understand the domain of education and take up a variety of responsibilities ranging from classroom teaching to programme management to policy implementation (NEP), in order to improve the public education system in India. 

Moreover, the availability of such trained professionals in education sector is grossly inadequate, given the scale, complexity of issues and the wide range of competencies required to work in these areas.

This 90 minute immersive session will walk you through challenges and concerns in the Indian education system and how trained and motivated professionals can meaningfully improve the quality of education. Strong public education is immensely important and foundational to the development of the society.
