Conference On Delivering Quality Education: A Call To Contribute To Better Education & Child Rights
With the intent of strengthening and protecting child rights, the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR), Government of Delhi is organising a conference on the theme of education on 14th and 15th July 2018. The Conference that is to witness Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia as its Chief Guest, government officials and some of the most renowned professionals in the field of education and child rights sector marks the decade of service of children of the Commission, the statutory watchdog for monitoring the implementation of child rights.
To commemorate this occasion, ideas are invited from educators, administrators, social workers, parents, students, or anyone engaged in the field of education, in any format such as papers, posters, case studies, videos, etc., on the following themes-
- Social Inclusion In Schools– particularly given that the schools are increasingly diverse in terms of gender, caste, religion, economic status and disability.
- Children’s Behaviour Management Practices– particularly the disciplining techniques for positively influencing the behaviours of children without resorting to physical or mental violence of any kind.
- Community & Parental Engagement: the case studies, or success stories wherein the School Management Committees (or any other formal or informal space for parents and schools to collaborate) have effectively sought to monitor and improve the functioning of the schools making it an enabling space for holistic growth of children.
- Bridging Learning Deficit: Learning is a key component to lift the generation out of poverty and it is a struggle to bridge this gap within time for the current generation of students. This submission must address issues, observations, and most importantly, innovations to bridge this gap. Relevant case studies and good practices in India or in the Indian context may be included.
If you are an educator, parent, bureaucrat, journalist, student, or a practitioner working in the field of education, or anyone who cares about the education system, here is an opportunity to share your thoughts in an open space with the government and like-minded people and an opportunity to walk the talk.
Selected submissions shall be invited to be presented at the conference and/or published in the DCPCR newsletter. The last date of submission is 29.06.2018 and submissions can be emailed to [email protected]
