PRESIDENT MESSAGE

In the year 2013, CRESCENT INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, President Shamshuddin Yousuf Saheb laid out an Education Institution for an economy that is built to last. The President’s plan affirms that the strength of the CRESCENT INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is inextricably linked to the strength of for Minority Educational Institutions under the constitution of India. Particularly in times of economic challenge, Indian employers need a workforce that is skilled, adaptable, creative, and equipped for success in the global marketplace. And our students need a more rigorous, better tailored education to acquire the skills they need to compete, to follow a clear pathway into the middle class and to continue to prosper.

To educate our way to a better economy, educators, public officials, and policymakers must ensure that every student in our country graduates from high school prepared for college and a successful career. Yet that is not enough. If India will have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by the end of the decade, every Indian should have access to at least one year of higher education training at an affordable cost. A world-class education system that provides high-quality job-training opportunities will reduce skills shortages, spur business growth, encourage new investment and hiring, spark innovation, and promote continued economic growth. These educational goals are central to rebuilding our economy and securing a brighter future for our nation, our career and CRESCENT INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (CIS) education system plays a critical part in accomplishing them.

At present, however, the CIS is in need of reform and updating. CIS took modest yet important steps to improve the quality of Secondary Education programs. But it did not go far enough to address the overarching educational and economic needs of youths and adults preparing to participate in the knowledge-based, global marketplace of the 21st century.

Our federal investment in CIS education must be dramatically shaped to fulfill its potential to prepare all students, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances, for further education and cutting-edge careers. The need to strengthen and elevate CIS is urgent.
