Consultant, communications at Ashoka India’s Changemaker Schools
Shweta Vitta works with Ashoka India’s Changemaker Schools – an initiative that is building a country-wide network of innovative schools which recognise the need for a new way of learning and are empowering young people by equipping them with changemaker skills.
Unfortunately, India's education system continues to remain focused on producing graduates who can meet the needs of industrialism rather than those who can create knowledge economies. But with an estimated 300 million students entering the workforce by 2025, this is a unique opportunity to rethink and reform the existing paradigm. The success of some programmes shows how this can be done.
