Tribal Education Reform
Systemic Reform & Teacher Support for Tribal Schools in Maharashtra
About the Partnership
A collaboration between the Tribal Development Department (TDD), Maharashtra & Leadership For Equity, the project aims to improve the learning outcomes & well-being of 4.5 lakh+ students across Maharashtra’s tribal schools.
Our two-part intervention comprises establishing an Education Resource Cell (ERC) in tribal schools to support the professional development of officers and teachers along with building a strong cadre of school-level teacher mentors.
