Are Government Schools Monitored Effectively?

The Public Accountability and Governance in Education (PAGE) project at CPR analysed the government monitoring system in public schools through intensive field surveys in five states over a period of five months during the last year.
Findings showed internal incoherence in institutional arrangements; lack of ownership by government officials; very poor state capacity at the frontline level; misplaced accountabilities; and emphasis on ‘form over function’.

Findings were shared at a recent seminar at CPR to be followed by state level disseminations.
