GISA urged independent schools in India to collaborate with schools around the world

Global Independent Schools Association

The Global Independent Schools Association, the first global representative body for the K–12 independent education sector, urged the more than 340,000 independent (private) schools in India to collaborate with schools from around the globe. (GISA). The organisation’s main goal is to share knowledge to enhance education provision globally and across all sectors, in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

According to recent data from the World Bank, more than 50% of secondary school students and 13% of primary school students in India are enrolled in independent institutions, whether they are run by non-profit organizations, religious institutions, special interest groups, foundations, or for-profit businesses.

The newly formed organisation has issued a pressing call for knowledge exchange between the private sector and governments to advance education throughout the globe. In order to achieve SDG4—ensuring inclusive, equitable, high-quality education for all by 2030—GISA must speak out as a respected partner.

This global association seeks to co-ordinate, represent, and give a voice to the global K-12 independent education sector – filling a “representation void” of a sector that educates 350 million children around the world – including 52% of secondary school children in South Asia and 45% of primary school children in Latin America.

“I am delighted to represent Nord Anglia Education, India, and join other providers of international education in India to launch the GISA India Chapter”, said Christopher Short, MD Nord Anglia Education India.

“GISA gives us an excellent platform to promote the benefits of international schools in India and highlight how we can work alongside the National system to promote high standards and educate the next generation of leaders”, he added further.

The goal of GISA is to establish itself as the independent education sector’s “go-to” advocate, highlighting its significance and serving as a contact point for governments and international organisations to reach out to in times of need. It will give the industry a platform to exchange its enormous amount of amassed knowledge and expertise with the independent sector. In addition, it aims to collaborate with governments and policymakers around the globe to help raise standards in educational institutions of all types, including public, independent, and third-sector institutions.
