Report on Budget Private Schools in India, 2017

Budget Private Schools (BPS) are critical in improving education quality and access at affordable cost, especially for children from lower and middle income families in India. Need of the hour is to engage with all stakeholders to leverage upon the vast pool of social capital created by BPS, as we progress toward realising the long-cherished dream of universal, high quality education for all.

This Report on Budget Private Schools in India creates a platform for informed interactions about the sector. Our aim in the years to come is to transform the nature of discourse on BPS from opinion-driven to evidence-based.

‘The report is a useful read for anyone interested in this sector: be it an entrepreneur planning to set up a school, a service provider working on teacher training or a policy maker interested in improving quality of private sector.’ – Ashish Dhawan, Founder and Chairman of Central Square Foundation
