Choice ideas for India

School Choice and its school voucher idea can be customized to solve various schooling problems. A few are:

  • Targeted vouchers for specific underserved groups such as migrant children, out of school children, street children, girl children, ST/SC/OBC, Muslim children, differently abled children, children from economically backward families, children of refugees, children of migrating tribes, children living in peri-urban areas (eg. resettlement colonies), orphans, children of prisoners

  • Vouchers could be used to reward performance of government school. When a government school attracts voucher students, who could also go to a private school, a part of the voucher amount could be given to the school/teachers as incentive

  • Mobile schools for children in migrant population which would ensure that children of such communities receive education throughout the year

  • Voucher is a powerful instrument for Public Private Partnership. It allows the government to capitalize on interested private companies, Non Governmental Organizations and interested individuals to set up new schools for which the government could assure support for running cost by guaranteeing 50-75% students in such schools through vouchers

  • To encourage establishment of community schools, vouchers can introduced specially in areas where there are no or very few government schools

  • School vouchers could be used to provide opportunity to enterprising principals /teachers to compete with the best in the industry. Such principals and teachers could opt for more managerial and financial autonomy with 100% funding through vouchers.

  • All new government schools can be funded through vouchers to attract motivated and high performing principals/teachers to government schools

  • Universal vouchers can be given to children in areas with no or very few government schools.
