Job Description - Position: Program Manager – EdTech, CSF Central Square Foundation

Position: Program Manager – EdTech, CSF
Central Square Foundation - Andaman and Nicobar Islands
Location: Delhi
India’s school education system is the largest in the world, with 260 million children, 1.5 million schools, and 8.5 million teachers. Government expenditure increased 15 times between 1990 and 2010, and 97% of children enter Grade 1. Yet, increased inputs and access have not led to improvements in learning. Proportion of 5th grade children who could read a 2nd grade text dropped from 59% in 2007 to 48% in 2016 and National Achievement Survey scores for Maths and Language reduced between 2012 and 2015 in 25 states. Some reasons for this include low government focus on quality initiatives, low quality human resources and poor governance and accountability mechanisms.
However, the focus is slowly shifting towards quality, and governments are paying more attention to learning. Clear benchmarks have been developed to measure learning and innovative models are being developed for low-income settings. A few state governments are focusing on holistic education reform, and a large amount of philanthropic funding is now directed towards education. While these efforts are promising, there is still a long way to go. There is a clear need for thought leadership, innovation, and amplification of current initiatives to ensure that all children are learning well.
