Brainstorming At Its Very Best

A panel discussion on

"Education for All: Prospects & Challenges"

In association with FICCI Odisha State Council

‘Education for All: Prospects & Challenges’ was the topic in 2015 which was organized in association with FICCI Odisha State Council. The RTE Act has made education a fundamental right and provides for all children between the ages of 6- 14 to get free education. Rural India suffers from issues like inadequate infrastructure, shortage of teachers and behavioral challenges. Children from marginalized homes do not have access to affordable quality education. Experts from different educational organizations came together to deliberate on this critical topic of “Equity Education for All”.

On the panel were Prof Marmar Mukhopadhyay, Chairman, Educational Technology & Management Academy, New Delhi, Mr Mahenrdra Kumar Mallick (IAS), State Project Director, Odisha Primary Education Programme Authority (OPEPA), Dr Banchhanidi Panda, President Vidyabharti, Odisha, Mr Gopinath T Menon, Chairperson, Sparsh Centre for Participatory Learning, Mumbai & Mr Purnendu Hota, Head & Project InCharge, Hole-in-the Wall Education Project, NIT, New Delhi.
