“Our global team of 250+ experts can leverage both neuroscience and cutting-edge technology to improve learning outcomes from pre-primary through secondary grades. Our work has impacted multiple factors that influence a child’s educational achievement across the lifetime of their education journey, such as learning, teacher support, parent support, educational infrastructure, access to technology, health, & exposure to other skills”, added Ashish Jhalani.

Ashish Jhalani, who spends a part of his time in India, has been working with the Government, both at a policy level and implementation level. He recently co-authored a report released by the PM’s Economic Advisory Council, titled ‘The State of Foundational Literacy and Numeracy in India’, and is all set to release the much anticipated ‘Pencil Power Report’ which outlines a future course for ECCE in India.

“Getting the education equation right is essential in order to build the India of tomorrow and drive the national growth-building agenda,” said Andy Butler.
