IIM-Ranchi's annual event TEDx saw 10 speakers narrating their stories on the theme 'Square pegs in round holes' at a hotel in the capital city on Sunday.
The success stories, though different from each other, had a common undertone - where there is a will, there is a way, but the will has to be more important than serving one's self.
Samina Bano, Founder, Chairperson of the RightWalk Foundation was recently invited as TEDx speaker at TEDx IIM Ranchi for a talk, where she spoke about Social Inclusion in Education and shared her experiences. She believes that When all children, regardless of their socioeconomic differences are educated together, everyone benefits. Since education is a great equalizer, RTE 12(1)(C) provides equal access to quality education irrespective of socioeconomic differences, thus helping reduce societal inequity. In her talk, Samina spoke about Social Inclusion in Education, Its importance, status in Uttar Pradesh, RightWalk’s intervention, socioeconomic integration in classrooms and Equity in education through Right To Education Act, her struggles for the cause, impact, success stories and the Future of education.
Not reservation for underprivileged. It's rather de-reservation of the privileged
