Indian Education stands at an important juncture with the enactment of the Right to Education Act and a commitment to the expansion of post secondary quality education. The increase in diversity in classrooms has necessitated a large scale response in terms of understanding this diversity and supporting inclusion. Responses are needed both in school education and higher education curriculum, pedagogy and policy. The School of Education, which was established in 2012, will build on and enhance areas of work in education in order to respond more comprehensively to the challenges facing Indian  education.

Four areas have been identified as focal points for the School in education related activities. These are (i) knowledge generation and capacity building of professionals for education, (ii) teacher professional development, (iii) higher education - Indian languages and pedagogy for diversity, and (iv) quality of school education.

Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), which just completed seventy-five years, is a premier institute in the country. In its continued quest for being relevant to societal needs, the Institute established the School of Habitat Studies, its sixth school, in May 2008.

The school is given the mission of working on a broad range of issues surrounding human habitats, touching upon both the social and spatial dimensions of human habitations. The key words guiding the school's activities are; societal relevance and interdisciplinarity. The school endeavors to be relevant by focusing its work on issues faced by diverse stakeholders in the sectors connected with human habitats. The commitment to work on practical, on-field problems requires the school to transcend disciplinary boundaries and draw from the social, physical, and engineering sciences as well as from the disciplines of architecture and planning. The Habitat School, following the TISS tradition, has since evolved a triple-pronged agenda for itself - education, research, and extension.
