Education has taken a whole new turn with the advent of technology. We cannot ignore the enthusiastic spree of older schools to upgrade their infrastructure and match up the modern day techno schools. Education has moved far beyond a chalk and talk model. We have witnessed the mushrooming of technology solution providers for almost every aspect of teaching-learning process, from smart boards for teaching to conducting online exams and assessments. However, technology could not have penetrated into the teaching system so well without the massive contribution and ready-to-adapt attitude of the educators. It would be imprudent to say that this transition from chalks to mouse clicks happened in a day and without the support from educators. And, it is not only technology-oriented teaching learning, but upgrading the vital components in school education like the pedagogy, infrastructure, sports activities and teachers’ training have also been on priority of these ambitious educators. These educators have thought ahead of time to prepare students for a better future. In this issue, we have featured top innovators who have done amazing work in advancing their school by ensuring a healthy learning environment. India is witnessing a big leap in school education sector, which is fueling demand for strong leadership abilities among school leaders to take this growth forward.
