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.
