The Indian public education system needs to transform to better serve its young learners. Evidence has repeatedly shown that children, specifically those attending public schools, have poor learning outcomes. Efforts to fix this have largely been in silos - curricular changes, teacher training, student assessments, etc. Few interventions have created any impact at scale.
A complete overhaul of the system is required. The need of the hour is a long-term, strategic approach towards systemic transformation; with alignment on goals, implementation of research-backed interventions owned by governments, and robust accountability mechanisms. Over the years, TEA has evolved its engagement with the government to a two-pronged approach towards education system transformation: 'Excellence in Government Schools' that demonstrates impact through innovation; and 'Strengthening System Reform' that is a long-term committed approach to bring changes at the systematic level. The overarching goal should be to make the system self-sustaining and make improvement, an organic process.
