Do schools get their money? Between October and November 2010, PAISA went to 13,021 government run elementary schools across India to ask the following questions: Did you get your money? When did you get your money? Did you spend the money, if so what was the output of that expenditure? This PAISA survey was conducted as part of the annual ASER survey that tracks learning outcomes. ASER is implemented entirely by citizen volunteers and civil society organizations making PAISA the first and only citizen led effort to track development funds. PAISA is conducted annually. This report “Do Schools get their money?” offers snapshots of findings from the 2010 survey.
