United by a vision to work with our students to reimagine education, the KER Collective have spent time this year, getting to know each other, embarking on a journey of student partnership and voice.
With the belief that collective action is critical if we want to reimagine education, partners come together every few weeks, in person, to learn from each other. Meetings this year have included being pushed by the Kindergarten students at BD Somani, a workshop where we stepped back to visualize student leaders who we know led by Avasara Academy, and conversations with third standard students at Ascend school about what school means to them.
Led by the Jindal Foundation, in close partnership with Teach For India, a Museum of Solutions is being built in a beautiful three-story building in Mumbai. The Museum of Solutions is envisioned as an imaginative space where kids work together to create and share real-world solutions for a better world.
Earlier this year, the KER team at Teach for India was asked to think about what our dream is for student leadership. As a result of this exercise, we came up with these five distinct ideas that will serve as the foundation of our work moving into the second year of KER.
