EDIFY SCHOOLS ARE DIFFRENT FROM TRADITIONAL INDIAN SCHOOLS. A. K. AGRAWAL, DIRECTOR – BUSINESS, MND EDIFY EDUCATION, EXPLAINS WHY AND HOW...
 
oving a step away from traditional educational system Edify Schools, a venture of MND Edify Education (P) Ltd., intends to create a society of progressive thinking individuals. In an interaction with 4Ps B&M A. K. Agrawal talks about why Edify Schools can become a leading educational institute in South East Asia by 2015.

Edify Education believes in a different approach to educate children. How tough was it for you to get going at the beginning?
Initially, it was not easy to build such a dedicated staff and to blend the international inquiry-based curriculum with CBSE curriculum. Moreover, parents had to be made aware of our policies and the motive behind chosing a complete modern system of education that is way apart from he traditional methods where children just have to read the lesson and write answers to questions given at the back of lesson. So not only training the teachers, but awareness of parents was also a challenge we had to face. Today I can boast with pride that I have been successful in crossing these basic hurdles.

Your system of imparting education is based on a 3C concept. Can you please elaborate about your 3C concept?
The 3C concept makes a child unfurl into a complete human being. 3C represents for Character, Competence and Content (stands for knowledge). Knowledge is gained through research, internet, books, practical experiences et al. As our content is not based on text books only, it is long lasting and helps in developing skills i.e. competence. Also we thrust upon making a child innovative, diligent, assertive, adaptive, communicative, passionate, object oriented, and risk taker. Combined together these are the skills, which go a long way in character building of a child.

With one of the highest GDP growth rates in the world and an array of recent achievements in technology, industry and entrepreneurship, India strides confidently towards the future. But, in the world’s largest democracy, not everyone is equally fortunate. More than 300 million Indians are still prey to hunger, illiteracy and disease, and 51 per cent of India’s children are still undernourished.

We started out four years ago trying to figure out how much money the government spends per child in government schools. No official figures were available. When we did our research, even while taking the official enrollment figures at face value (which are generally fudged), we were surprised by our discovery. The school education system seemed like a black hole where money was being heavily pumped, with no tangible results. With the amount that the government spends per child in cities like Delhi [Rs. 1,200 to Rs. 1,700] the child could be sent to extremely good schools. This reinforced our faith in the project. "Fund students, not schools," became our slogan to the government.
