The education reform plan  of the Presidential Task Force is visionary and comprehensive,  but it does not address (1)  Strategies for effective implementation (2) Limitations such as political interference(3) Inefficiencies in administration, (4) Lack of empowerment of teachers, and the (5)  Reality of insufficient funding. A more strategic approach identifying a few pivotal strategies and how they can be implemented  is needed. EFSL will present a brief on such a strategic approach using the inputs from this dialogue.
