School Choice National Conference (SCNC) is an annual event that provides a much needed platform to identify critical issues in the education sector, review existing programs, explore strategies to face the challenges ahead and ideate on ingenious solutions to provide quality education to all children in India.
Theme for SCNC 2014: Freedom in Education
Various educational organizations worldwide have been advocating for greater freedom in education. The concept of Freedom in Education is vast and has multiple aspects to it, including curricular freedom, freedom to establish and operate schools, school level autonomy, and greater choice for students and parents. In this year’s conference we will discuss Freedom in Education from the point of view of increased choice for students and parents.
Through an exploration of dimensions to freedom in education, we will seek to understand, how different stakeholders across the world perceive freedom? What are the policies that enable more freedom in different education systems? We will also deep dive into some of the existing models that empower parents and students to exercise freedom in education. Appreciating the centrality of government and policy in choice as well as freedom in education, we will also look at what policy framework can help enhance this freedom.
Key sessions at the conference will focus on discussing the different dimensions and models of Freedom in Education, and provide insights into the future of the concept of Freedom in Education.
Bring together educationists, educational planners, policy experts, activists and government officials to discuss and debate dimensions of Freedom in Education
Showcase innovative models—both national and international—that create an ecosystem that enables greater Freedom in Education
