Need of a solution at a school level

Education institutes have evolved over the years. Today schools have to deal with thousands of students and hundreds of faculty members, facing the constant challenges to ensure quality delivery of education. With its current size and scale, how does a school really focus on an individual?

While the onerous task of running the school is vested with the Management and the Principal, their challenges multiply with the education domain having to respond to the requirements of a virtual industry and competing entities in this domain, who offer more and more material facilities. These are a challenge  to  preserving the years of traditions at a school that make it an institution, as also ensuring that the school stays ahead in this competitive environment. Additionally, the standing and stature of the school leaders resulting in a personality cult of leadership also have their own positives and negatives.  These issues may be specific to a single or group of institutions.

The increasing debate of “Right Regulation” only adds to the complexities, be it with regard to affiliation/recognition requirements, certification requirements, reservation quotas, grants, etc.

The only answer to these challenges is to grow the school’s performance in terms of its quality output on a sustainable basis. Quality, therefore, in schools has assumed greater significance in current times.

Need of a solution for a cluster / government

Today a large number of group (private) & state funded schools exist. The objective behind these institutions is to ensure masses have access to quality education so that they can grow to become good citizens and contribute effectively in nation building. However managements (private or government) face immense challenges in running schools in line of this vision.

Various policies & schemes are envisaged to create and enhance value for millions of students, teachers, parents and administrative staff. Large sums of funds are allocated to ensure that the vision turns into reality. However both implementation and assessing the effectiveness of these policies & schemes remain a daunting challenge.

The need of the hour is a governance system which can –

  • Provide authentic and valid information that can help in identifying needs and formulate policies both at institutional & nodal level
  • Ensure implementation (of these policies & schemes) in a defined & standardized manner so that the benefit reaches the intended beneficiary
  • Provide real time feedback about the effectiveness so the required preventive or corrective measures can be taken

M-Star School Expert System is the only product which can assist management bodies to meet the above objectives.
