Free Press Journal (FPJ), one of India’s oldest and most loved newspapers has embarked on a massive school survey titled "Mumbai Schools Survey 2022". The aim of the survey is to celebrate ‘outstanding’ schools under various categories in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and Thane city. FPJ’s research partner in this mammoth exercise is Pillai College of Education and Research (Chembur), and SLN Global Network is its relationship partner.
The survey in collaboration with Power-Ed aims to appreciate the efforts of schools in measures that have impacted quality education. Power-Ed is an educational community of institutions and services, developed with the mission to strengthen, collaborate and enhance the quality of education in the country.
The findings of this survey will go a long way in helping parents and other stakeholders make informed decisions about schools that focus on efforts to excel. This school survey does not aim to generate any ranking list of schools; instead will honor the schools that shine in our 'Outstanding' lists.
This inclusive school survey is open to all types of schools, private and government schools affiliated with the IB board, Maharashtra State Board, CISCE (ISCE), CBSE, and Cambridge.
To implement this gigantic effort, Free Press Journal and Power-Ed will be supported by an eminent list of the jury, all deeply connected to the education industry.
