Why samata.shiksha? This website has been set up to share thinking and experiences on equity and on enhancing the quality of education among all school-goers in the state of Maharashtra, particularly those from the under-served sections of society.
The need for a website where experiences of work in equity and quality are shared among education professionals was first identified by MSCERT and UNICEF. As Comet Media Foundation, we are happy to have been invited to build a platform where teachers, researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders can communicate their experiences.
The website has three basic areas of interest: equity, quality and the role of teachers in bringing about change. The role of samata.shiksha is to create a meaningful dialogue on education and it draws on ideas and resources from across India and the rest of the world.
samata.shiksha welcomes contributions from education professionals and other readers. Please share your thoughts and experiences and raise questions of interest to people engaged with equity and quality issues in education.
