Emphasising the need of highlighting the good works done by teachers and organisations in nooks and corners of India, HRD School Education Secretary Anil Swarup on Saturday said wisdom does not lie in Delhi, it lies in the States.
“Don’t limit yourself to criticism, recognise the good works happening around you. The good works need to be replicated…We have to see and highlight the scalable part of the good work,” Swarup told a gathering of educationalists at the 6th Elets School Leadership Summit held at Eros Hotel in New Delhi.
He further said that his objective is to “create a conducive environment so that the education in India could flourish”.
“My concern is how to make things happen on the ground…It is in events like this (School Leadership Summit) where solutions emerge,” the top bureaucrat said.
However, in a word of caution, he said, “Every idea has to be politically acceptable because we live in a democracy. Also the idea has to be socially acceptable.”
A very useful interaction with school leaders at the Summit today. These are performers in the field that are creating a #nexusofgood. Public-Private partnership rightly emerged as the key to transforming school education in the country. pic.twitter.com/KzV6Jzq3Bx
