Internship 2016


In the second week, we have performed a literature review of secondary research on linkages between education spending and learning outcomes, and have also analysed the flowchart of budgetary allocations at the centre and states. Following a meeting with our research guide, we also decided to investigate funding sources—according to one paper, for example, India still receives copious amounts of aid from the World Bank, part of which is used for funding central education programmes! We have also managed to compile some initial data regarding central and state budget allocation—primarily from ASER’s PAISA report—on contributions to SSA, RTE grants, and percentage of allocated funds that are expended, Furthermore, we finalised a ‘division of labour’, with two of us deciding to perform a review of existing research on other aspects of the education sector, one of us compiling available data from governmental agencies and the private sector, and one of us building the aforementioned flowchart. Over the course of the next week, following our midterm presentation, we intend to further analyse the budgetary amount allocated to various governmental schemes, including scholarships and other flagship programmes, and research other scholarly contributions to the topic.
