Kulesh Jain: What should be done in education to benefit most children?
Dr. Lalit Kishore: It is not desirable to scale up an educational intervention but it could be good idea to universalise the culture of innovations and designing interventions to address to the diversity of learners and their contexts. Education has to be based on the democratic principles of justice, equity and inclusion to accept every child and accommodate him or her in the learning process by addressing to his or her learning style.
Kulesh Jain: How can we go about spreading the culture of contextualised interventions and innovations in school education?
Dr. Lalit Kishore: We must go for community-based democratic schools with autonomy to make learning happen for every child for whom they must create needs and context based interventions and innovations rather than imposed interventions. Responsive teachers and schools are needed to be created that have faith in the innate learning potential of each child and foster and nurture it in diverse ways.
