Why a parent rejected the schooling system, exams and degrees

Vidhi Jain

The motivation to unschool her own daughter and the lack of available alternatives made Vidhi Jain an educationist. She runs an institution known as Shikshantar in her home town of Udaipur.

Vidhi Jain does not send her daughter to school, or force her into the rat race of exams and degrees. Disillusioned by the ‘factory schooling’ system, she became an educationist and created a radical alternative. Her students are given the room to make choices and the freedom to be creative. She shares the results this has achieved. shikshantar.org
