Shift Educationtowards greater light

Shift Education was founded in 2018 with the mission to enable greater depth and authenticity in schools.


We created Shift Education in 2018 with a clear vision: to reinvent schools. We are working on innovations in the domains of education technology, curriculums, processes and systems, community engagement, and human connection.

We have dedicated the last two years and continue in our quest to deeply understand the challenges of a school at the grassroots level. Through small research studies and engaging with different stakeholders, we continue to grow and evolve in our understanding and capacity to respond to contemporary challenges in a school system.

Presently, we are working with a small group of schools in India towards positive transformation to improve the learning attainments of children.

We invite explorations and collaborations from like-minded individuals and groups to build research and create unique solutions to critical challenges such as early learning, technology in education, community engagement, inclusion, classroom instruction methods, school systems, and system governance.
