Unlike all sto­ries, ClassRebels did­n’t start with the sim­ple idea of mak­ing teach­ers and stu­dents con­nect in a way they’ve never con­nected be­fore. It started with an idea to bring about a re­form, a change, and a rev­o­lu­tion. In India, this change was long needed. The so­ci­ety is evolv­ing, and our ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem needs to catch up.

We be­lieve that the whole idea of ed­u­ca­tion is taken in the wrong sense. It’s be­come a mis­con­cep­tion that study­ing is only about scrolling through the pages of your text­book the night be­fore your exam. It’s not about that. Education is about free­dom.

Education is the most pow­er­ful weapon which you can use to change the world. > Nelson Mandela

And that’s the dream we’re try­ing to ful­fill. Making ed­u­ca­tion not re­stricted to class­rooms — in­stead of a pro­fes­sor talk­ing to hun­dreds of stu­dents in one sin­gle au­di­to­rium—we’re pro­vid­ing both stu­dents and teach­ers with a place where they can in­ter­act with each other. Where they can study, but with a dif­fer­ence.

Our mis­sion is to de­velop our na­tion’s hu­man re­source. The way ed­u­ca­tion takes place right now is in­ef­fi­cient, and we’re try­ing to re­design the sys­tem from group up. A new de­f­i­n­i­tion to how stu­dents study. A new par­a­digm. And in the end, a rev­o­lu­tion. We know that the best weapons man­u­fac­turer al­ways won the war, and con­nect­ing the dots, we un­der­stand the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion in twenty-first cen­tury India. Us, be­ing stu­dents our­selves, know the prob­lems faced while try­ing to get that de­gree.

However, we do not be­lieve that there is an ab­sence of good teach­ers and ed­u­ca­tional con­tent. That’s en­tirely false. The only prob­lem that arises is that there is no way a stu­dent can dis­cover an amaz­ing teacher, or a teacher can dis­cover an amaz­ing stu­dent, with­out al­ready hav­ing mu­tual con­tacts. That’s what we’re try­ing to change. A place where stu­dents can look for every­thing they need, from notes to teach­ers’ up­dates to cal­en­dars based on study­ing sched­ules. All in one sin­gle place we like to call ClassRebels.
