According to the bank website, "To address the ongoing challenges in school education and to improve the quality of education, the Ministry of Education (MOE) launched a new flagship scheme in 2018, Samagra Shiksha, which combines the previous two schemes (SSA and RMSA) and Teacher Education. Samagra Shiksha aims to provide holistic, integrated support for the states' school education from preschool to senior secondary schools with unified administrative structure. Compared to the previous schemes, the new scheme shifts its focus to ensuring the quality of education, particularly inclusive and equitable learning outcomes. The NEP 2020 further sets the country's vision of quality education for the future, with emphasis on strong foundational skills and learnability to equip the young with 21st century skills requirements, which range from foundational literacy and numeracy, exposure to vocational education at earlier grades, critical thinking, experiential learning, student-centered learning, and to socioemotional (soft) skills."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
