Story

Sitting in a remote corner of Goa, Satish and Aneesha, 14 years old, like all of us are on their phone. They look engrossed. It's not a video game - he is asking his teacher to explain a problem he was not able to understand. Yes, India has made considerable progress in furthering educational access, and teachers and leaders have been leading the change from the frontlines even during a pandemic. Yet there are many others like Satish and Aneesha, who wanted to learn but did not have an invested school. For them, the pandemic took away 2 years of their learning and some more.

 

Kavita Anand, the founder of Adhyayan says that a "Good quality education is available even in adversity, lays the groundwork for societal fairness, is the foundation of sustainable development and therefore all other sustainable development goals, and is the most essential tool for the betterment of human society."


The pandemic has proved that only proactive government schools in India can provide ‘good quality’ education to the 113 million+ children.

The National Education Policy, 2020 states that classrooms should be places where students develop skills such as communication, collaboration and critical thinking.

"In order to realize this vision, we need teachers who can facilitate such classrooms. School leaders create a supportive ecosystem that enables teachers to make learning a vibrant experience for students." emphasizes Kavita. 


At Adhyayan, we have been working with leaders in government schools of Goa, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura to:


  1. Set up groups of schools (school complexes) to learn together and share resources so that no school has to work in isolation. 
  2. Create a common understanding of what a ‘good’ school is so everyone can have a common goal they aspire towards.
  3. Develop action plans so they can systematically work towards improving their schools and receive the support they need to be able to do that.
  4. Set up professional learning communities for teachers and leaders where they can share best practices in their lesson planning and delivery.

With our work in 824 Schools in Goa, 210 Schools in Tripura, and 46 Schools in Arunachal Pradesh, we have seen:


  1. Students, teachers, parents, and school leaders review their own schools together.
  2. Students, teachers, parents and school leaders being able to identify what they are doing well and what they can do better.
  3. All stakeholders coming together to build a shared vision of a ‘good’ school.
  4. Teachers and leaders with access to peer learning environments to learn from and support each other in becoming more effective.
  5. Teachers and leaders feeling better equipped to make decisions that are rooted in data and evidence so they can make better decisions for their students.


When India-wide only 37.6% of government school-going students were able to access learning material during the pandemic school closures (ASER2021), more than 80% of children in Goa received access to learning material and support consecutively for 18 months. This happened because the school leaders and teachers were able to work together and had support from the State.


"As an organization, we have seen the impact of quality education in more than 1000+ schools. We strongly believe it can be catalyzing and transformational for India and its children if more than 100,000+ schools were able to provide quality education." shares Kavita on the impact Adhyayan has seen in the past 5 years of its operations.
