The planning arm of the Indian government NITI Aayog and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation (MSDF) today (February 12) signed a Statement of Intent (SOI) to codify, document, and share best practices to improve learning outcomes in public school education through systemic reforms, based on their collective experiences of working with various state governments in India.

The SOI was signed in the presence of Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog, by Alok Kumar, Adviser (HRD), NITI Aayog and Barun Mohanty, Managing Director (International), MSDF.

As a part of this initiative, the School Education Quality Index (SEQI) is being developed to rank states / UTs on educational outcomes, with a high weightage to learning outcomes.

Under this partnership, NITI Aayog and MSDF will document the reforms pursued by various state governments that have initiated systemic reforms in education and have begun to see improved learning outcomes over the past few years.

Under the agreement, a joint team comprising state leaders, consultants, research agencies, and educators shall work together to develop a ‘theory of change’ based on the learning from the states and will document the impact on ground by commissioning third party studies to evaluate the impact of systemic reforms in education.
