The School Choice National Conference (SCNC) is our flagship conference on education policy that brings together educationists, researchers, policy experts, activists and government officials to explore, discuss and debate various dimensions of school education in India. The conference has been an important platform enabling us to disseminate research and data among stakeholders, draw media interest, and engage policy experts, practitioners and policy-makers in a dialogue on the need for and mechanisms for the implementation of our reform recommendations.
In 2019, we will host the 11th edition of the conference on 13th December 2019 in New Delhi, addressing the theme of ‘Realising the Promise of the National Education Policy: Regulation | Service Delivery | Assessment’. In the context of the recently released Draft National Education Policy, the conference will engage with policy-makers, experts and practitioners on how state governments can build the institutional framework for effective regulation, efficient service delivery, and consistent assessment to realise the vision of quality education for all. Through a triad of working groups comprising state and union government officials, educationists, and public administration experts, we propose to delve into each intervention pillar and help government functionaries develop an implementation blueprint for their respective states. The conference will have a keynote address followed by three sessions/round tables focusing on a specific aspect of the larger theme.
