Education World Conference

Last weekend saw one of the biggest education conferences of the year take place at the Westin Hotel, Gurgaon. All credit to Dilip Thakore, editor of Education World magazine who had brought together a really interesting line up of speakers for the day. The morning saw a data backed keynote from Geeta Kingdon followed by a very lively debate on the Right to Education Act.

After lunch, not only was I privileged to share the stage with Ashish Rajpal (iDiscoveri Education), Amy Seefelt (Woodstock School) and Sarvesh Naidu (Pathways Schools), but for the first time i had the privilege and pleasure to work alongside my predecessor, Abha Adams.

The final session was a thought-provoking session exploring the scope for the private sector to support change and improvement in the government schools system, chaired by Madhav Chavan of Pratham and including a TSRS parent, Jerry Almeida.

Here’s the write-up from Times of India on Sunday:
