Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

The program is based on Kavita Ghosh's book Wanted Back­Bencher Last Ranker Teacher. Staff members work collaboratively to gain knowledge to solve significant student learning problems in their schools. We seek to understand individual members' needs and then assist them in meeting objectives through a collaborative learning environment and with the support of experienced coaches.

Inspired by WANTED BACK­BENCHER AND LAST­RANKER TEACHER - Kavita Ghosh: When indiscipline at Roderick International School, Mussoorie, becomes an alarming issue for members of the Board, educators and parents alike, CEO Jacob Roderick decided to bring in an experimental teacher, Roma Mathur against the wishes of the Board of Directors to curb the growing aggression, hostility and vandalism. Will someone like Roma Mathur, written off by her teachers as a 'Moron' and 'Good for nothing', be able to inspire learning in students who loathe studying and sitting in classrooms? Will this maverick academic, who had been highly mischievous as a student herself, be able to instil values and discipline in her students? Is there any place for someone as unconventional as Roma Mathur among the esteemed and sophisticated faculty at the prestigious International School? Has Jacob Roderick made a grave mistake in recruiting someone who plays the drums, watches Tom and Jerry, beats up Goons in the pub, and rides a sports bike over the gold medalist, experienced teachers who had applied? What was it the school needed at this desperate hour? It is time for the students of RIS to take a call on what kind of teachers they need in their classrooms.
