Her education leadership and the Riverside approach have garnered praise and accolades, but she says it’s not really innovation as much as common sense.
‘The fact that children must engage with each other, they must have a voice, they must have a say in their learning is not innovative by any stretch of the imagination. The fact that we don’t put it into practice on a daily basis; I find that is what possibly schools can learn from Riverside – how do you put common sense into common practice and then how do you create processes that can be replicable and sustainable.’
Sethi says the design processes are a lot to do with helping schools reimagine what a single day might look like and that the real ‘magic’ is in timetabling. ‘When your timetable becomes your conscience, then it changes the way you look at time, otherwise, we timetable for subjects – we don’t timetable for relationships, or relevance, or rigour.’
On 14th September, 2022 the volume features 21 education leaders who have undertaken different micro improvements to enhance the learning environment for their students. It is a celebration of their invisible, hard, everyday efforts for their students, community and teachers. We sincerely hope it is able to remind the ecosystem that any sustainable improvements in the education ecosystem can only be led by enabling its leadership.READ MORE

"Riverside is one of the best schools I have seen - both in India and abroad. It uses a lot of real-life applications in the work and projects that students do. At Riverside, learning is about fun, about understanding and "Making Learning Visible". Although there is no visible focus on assessment, they do consider assessment as important and use the outcomes for planning."Sridhar Rajgopalan

"It is heartening to be in a school where children know why they are there and why they are being asked to learn things that they are learning. The most important thing for a child to get from school is the habit of being curious and learning, and wanting to use that understanding to make the world a better place."Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson
