IIndia has undertaken some of the largest education initiatives in the world, providing hundreds of thousands of schools for India’s vast student population of c.280 million under the age of 14 and  600  million  under  the  age  of  25.  India’s  gross  school  enrolment  ratio  has  now  reached  over 95%. However, while quantitatively India is inching closer to universal education, the levels of quality, particularly in its government run school system, remain a cause for concern. After  a  15  year  gap,  India  has  embarked  on  a  review  of  its  National  Education  Policy  and  Curriculum Framework. It is expected that the review will revisit many of the intentions of the 2005 review, which were not implemented.
The  purpose  of  the  paper  is  to  reflect  on  the  extent  to  which  India’s  Draft  Education  Policy  2019 policy intentions are in line with international education reform recommendations, as outlined  in  ‘The  Learning  Generation:  Investing  in  education  for  a  changing  world’  report  (2015) produced by the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity.
The  paper  reflects  on  some  of  the  particular  challenges  that  India  faces  in  addressing  the  impact of poverty and non‐education factors on the quality of learning in India’s schools and the potential role of educational technology. The reflections seek to spark discussion about the scope of the draft policy and its implementation challenges.
