BPS Report 2018 - Section 3

In this section, we look at the perils of educating children for an increasingly unknown and uncertain future. From the parents' schooling choices to the children's aspirations, we focus on three specific innovations that go beyond standard curriculum and academic quality, and instead focus on sports, nutrition and creativity. A critical concern here is the affordability of innovations. This section will explore the current funding methods within schools as well as external sources. It also presents expert views on fee regulations governing private schools and brings to fore the new developments in education financing, methods of public-private partnerships and ecosystem development that can foster scalable impact.
