Reimagining education has taken centre stage in the post-lockdown era. The colossal impact of Covid-19 on the schooling system has reemphasised the need for new approaches in the education space (Faul & Savage, 2023). The role of the state/government in Delhi has been redefined to envision reformatory leadership in the public education system. Article 29 (1) of the Convention on the Rights of the Child emphasises the responsibility of states to ensure education makes children achieve their full potential.

The National Education Policy 2020 of India has also enumerated many ways in which education can support children to reach their full potential. Therefore the necessity to create pathways for children to reach their full potential becomes essential for the state to transform policy into action.

The pandemic caused the closure of schools around the world. India experienced prolonged tenure of school closure that led to immense learning and socio-emotional losses. With schools now having reopened completely after approximately two years, the need is to incorporate innovative solutions and sustainable education models to incorporate better holistic learning processes. One approach towards this is to convert the education system into a more student-centric one.

The openness of the states in India for adaptation, blending and implementation is crucial to introduce practices for the welfare of students. It demonstrates the collective consciousness for quality education.
