“7th School Choice National Conference was organised on 19 December 2015 in India Habitat centre, New Delhi. Theme for this year conference was ‘New Education Policy: Keep Students First!’. The first session was titled as ‘New Education Policy: Depoliticization’.
“Minimum Government, Maximum Governance” is one of the most popular slogans of the current government. Can the principles of “”Minimum Government, Maximum Governance”” be applied to education sector? In education sector, government currently plays the role of regulator, financier and provider. In this session we contemplated upon whether this role is yielding right impact and how can this role be changed to the benefit of India’s education system?”
