A sneak peek into Academic Year 2023-24

A Decade of Dreams

Thread Activity.png

30 April 2015

9 years ago, 2 schools opened up their gates to invite a group of 87 students to their new school. 2 visionaries started with a team of audacious educators with a dream of levelling the playing field for students coming from low-income communities of Pune. What started with a dream, is now a movement of 12 schools in 2 cities impacting more than 4500 students and 3000 alums. This year marks the beginning of the 10th year at iTeach Schools. 

If we have to summarize the learning of this decade in one word, it is the power of dreams.  It is our dreams that brought us all together. It is our dreams that have kept us going. It is our dreams that we want to celebrate this year.

Join us as we celebrate this year, A Decade of Dreams.

What are our 3 big challenges?

1. Students:

-  Learning gap for incoming G8 students continues to be a huge struggle.  Students coming in 3+ years behind.

-  21st century challenges of social media addiction, drug abuse, religious polarization - we're unable to address these systemically (both curriculum and staff are not really capable of addressing these things) - and only able to deal with symptoms

2. Alumni:

-  Students choosing lower quality colleges due to distance type reasons - lower aspiration than needed towards top colleges

-  While 85% are working, their median salary is Rs. 18000.  Yes double of family income, but still far from what it can be.  Setting a new goal of 25000 for this year, and 30000 the year after.

3. Org Development:

-  Teachers still finding it hard to cater to 40 students at once - need volunteers / interns steadily to help.  Unable to do that with cost / quality / delivery (time) and consistency
