GRAAM's Executive Director and Principal Investigator of the report, Dr. Basavaraju R Shreshta on 21st-century skills says, "21st-century skills are imperative for the development of human capital of the country and thereby its development. The biggest limitation we are seeing among the students graduating from schools and universities is the ability to critically analyze the concepts taught, comprehend, and communicate. We need not impart 21st-century skills as a standalone subject. It should be integrated with the curricular activities, very systematically. It is now important to develop an operational framework and process to integrate 21st-century skills in the schooling system of our country."
This comprehensive State of the Sector Report on 21st Century Skills in India will be a useful guide and reference for youth leaders and policymakers and influencers at all levels in understanding the landscape, challenges, enablers, opportunities, and best practices related to this domain.
