We are working to transform the school education system in India to improve the learning outcomes of all children, especially from low-income communities. To achieve our goal, we provide support and partner with organizations working on innovative solutions in education, as well engage with the system to drive sustainable and positive impact. We also collaborate with other ecosystem stakeholders to build research and create effective proven tools around critical issues.
Our Impact Areas
Ensuring a strong foundation
We believe all children should attain the foundational skills of reading with meaning and basic math by class 3.
Improving Learning Outcomes
We believe in encouraging focus on student learning outcomes from parents, school owners and policy makers to improve the quality of the private school sector.
THE EDGE: HOW SCHOOLS CAN FOCUS ON IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LEARNING AND TEACHING
The April edition of The EDge looks at how schools can prioritize improving the quality of learning and teaching. The first article summarizes how Key-Stage Assessments (KSAs) in grades 3, 5 and 8 can play a transformative role in improving student learning, and explains how they can be institutionalized in states. In the second article, we speak to Bhuvana Anand, Founder-Director at Trayas, on the need for setting up an independent regulatory body to address regulatory challenges faced by low-fee private schools so that they can focus on learning outcomes.
