In 2015, under the aegis of Advaith Foundation, the National Institute for Leaders in Education (NILE) was established to recognize the influence of education leaders in India. School leaders play significant roles in transforming the ecosystem by understanding what needs to be done to improve the academic condition, support teacher development, and student achievement.
This gave birth to a new idea which aimed to address one crucial issue – How can we build the capacity of these education leaders further to create sustainable improvement in school education? This also brought along the concerns of quality at scale and with speed.
ShikshaLokam was born out of this need to equip multiple stakeholders in the school leadership sphere to enhance the quality of education in India.
