Latest Update: Education Emergency Policy Tracker
Information on policy measures being taken by state and the central governments
The National Coalition on the Education Emergency has been established to provide a forum for individuals and organizations to come together and build a larger awareness of the crisis arising from keeping schools closed, and build social pressure to carefully open schools and to ensure structured learning opportunities for all children, especially those from the marginalized groups. The Coalition will aim to collate and develop models of teaching that provide meaningful opportunities for student learning, both in schools and in community learning centers.
Three working groups have been set up after the first consultation of the Coalition, on 16th July, to take the work of the coalition forward.
1. Working group – Education support to communities
A Working group on “Education support to communities” has been set up which is working on producing a compilation of NGO interventions providing meaningful learning opportunities to students during COVID. The template for compiling the intervention experiences is available here.
This group plans to create a policy brief laying out principles for education support, develop/curate simple resources with ideas and activities for teachers and for parents (to aid caregivers in engaging with children and support their learning), etc.
2. Working group – Social Mobilization
The Working Group on “Social Mobilization” will organize meetings with interested individuals and groups in different states to build a larger discourse on the education emergency, and create social pressure across the country for careful/phased school opening. The meeting will discuss and plan the activities for this group.
The group will organize translations of materials including the note on education emergency into other languages to reach the message to parents, worker groups, communities. The group is also aiming to create small/simple video messages, posters for a wider audience.
3. Working group – Research
The Working Group on Research is working on creating a compendium of research studies; prepare a policy tracker tool comparing states/ districts on their actions/decisions relating to school education. The group is also planning a rapid survey to collect data from the ground.
