Gaurav Singh 2013 Global Fellow

Bold Idea 

Empower marginalized children in India to become global citizens by growing a network of model schools that elevate the quality of education within communities and across the country.

Summary 
3.2.1’s vision is to create India’s first high quality charter-­like school network that will create a new standard of excellence for educating children from marginalized communities. The schools will serve as ‘belief centers’ for people to see what is truly possible. By using research to shape our practice, and technology to capture our methodology, we are creating ‘lab schools’ which, like R&D centers, will create, test, and then share innovations in teaching with the broader education community.
