How have States Designed their School Education Budgets?
Till date, there is limited information available in the public domain on the composition of state level spending on school education. The information available is mostly at the aggregate level. There is less information on major deficiencies/gaps in allocation of budgets for school education across different states, as well as across different components within public provisioning for school education. An appropriate analysis of all these aspects can generate insights needed to suggest corrective policy measures at different levels.
This study is an effort to unpack the structure and composition of school-education budgets across states.
