Mr. Manit Jain
Co-Founder, The Heritage Group of Schools
Alumnus - Harvard University
When Mr.Manit Jain began his journey in the domain of education in the year 2000, his deep disillusionment with his own education resurfaced. He saw that a child’s ability and knowledge were judged and her future determined purely by how she did in exams in a rote-based system. He realised that our education system’s shortcomings must be overcome if our children are to retain their basic curiosity and develop into thoughtful leaders that the nation needs. Thus began his quest for an alternate system of education that would be child centric and shape thoughtful leaders and nation builders.
This quest took Mr. Jain to some of the best schools in the U.S., U.K., Europe and India. Determined to make a difference, he consulted with the best brains across the globe to evolve a 21st century curriculum along with teachers trained in progressive methodologies. In this context, he himself completed a Master’s in Education from Harvard University. Manit’s role models include thinkers such as Sri Aurobindo, Krishnamurti, Kurt Hahn, John Dewey and Rudolf Steiner, amongst many others. He considers himself a life-long student and believes that individuals and organisations must continue to learn in order to realise their visions.
