Manipur’s System Transformation and Rejuvenation (STAR) Education Programme will be underpinned by the same holistic methodology that delivers one of the largest learning gains in international education measured by Nobel Laureate.

The roll out of the STAR Education programme was announced by Chief Minister N Biren on June 13 as the second component of the School Fagathansi Mission to focus on the “soft infrastructure” – to improve the quality of teaching and learning excellence to produce radically improved learning outcomes.

A release by the STAR Education Manipur stated that children living in deprived communities received 53 per cent more learning in NewGlobe-supported schools over the course of their early childhood and primary school career, according to a ground-breaking study, led by professor Michael Kremer, the 2019 Nobel Prize-winning economist.

The study findings were revealed in an address by the Nobel Prize-winning economist to a delegation of education ministers from various states of India, and other political leaders at the Education World Forum, the world’s largest gathering of education and skills ministers, hosted by the UK which was held in May, it said.

The holistic methodology studied by the Nobel prize winning author will underpin the Manipur government’s flagship STAR Education program to transform learning outcomes across its government school system, the release stated.

“If replicated at scale across public education systems, the gains could be enough to put children from underserved communities on track to match their peers in countries with incomes three or four times higher,” it added.

It stated that the STAR Education will introduce a school transformation model, involving innovative technology and a data-driven platform, coupled with high quality learning materials, effective training and ongoing coaching for teachers and school headmasters, and technology-enabled support teams to create 360-degree support for learning outcomes.

This has been validated by the Nobel Prize Winner for producing the world's largest learning gains ever studied in the history of education interventions across emerging markets, it added.

Stating that STAR will be a way to ensure model implementation of the NEP 2020, it said that the STAR will ensure that regardless of a child’s location of birth or the income or education levels of their parents, all children of Manipur have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
