What is the Kids Education Revolution?

The Kids Education Revolution is a bold and ambitious collective of schools and educational organisations that are working towards reimagining education at scale and are driven by a profound belief in the power of student leadership. It aims to influence the conversation of what constitutes an excellent education by listening to and learning from our children and youth to fulfil the individual potential of each child and the collective potential of our nation.

Our journey

Why the Kids Education Revolution?

KER was created to address three needs:
The need for a reimagined education

India today faces a well-known educational crisis. Over 76% of our children will not graduate from high school and enter college, and of those that do, a fraction actually attain a holistic education that truly equips them to fully maximize their potential. There is a radical need to redefine the purpose of education so that we unleash the fullest capability of each individual, but also so that we collectively make our country and world better.

The need for equal partnership

While our primary stakeholder in education is the student, we do not have a system that listens to and learns from, students. Students are the recipients of the decisions adults take for them but do not have a voice in shaping those decisions.

The need for collective action

There are so many working to make education better for India’s children, and yet there is a limited partnership between them. The problem is too pressing, and too large, for us to work alone. We must learn from each other and work together with the belief that the result of this will be deep, significant impact at scale for our children.

As we look at the opportunities that these needs present, we are fuelled by belief.
We believe that we can widen today’s academic education from being narrowly focused on finding a job, to a holistic education that fully unleashes both individual and collective potential.
We believe that positive change in education will happen when adults and students come together to listen to and learn from each other, as equal partners.
We believe that bringing students and educators together from diverse backgrounds will enable collective impact that is unprecedented.
