- There has been an increase in education spending over the last five years but learning outcomes have been poor and have been declining.
Possible Ways to improve Learning Outcomes of Students :-
- We need to focus on classroom practice. Teachers need to be equipped with the right training on effective techniques and they should be introduced to concepts such as differentiation, where each child learns according to his or her level. Teacher training must be practical and teachers must be provided feedback on the job.
- We need to scale programmes that demonstrate impact and not just run to the next innovation or pilot. Programmes must be rigorously evaluated for impact before they are scaled.
- We need to partner more. Whether it’s public-private partnerships or NGO partnerships or State government knowledge sharing, more needs to happen.
