The Budget Private School Report (BPS) is the Center for Civil Society’s annual research initiative aimed at presenting the role that Private Budget Schools play in delivering quality education at a basic level, and documenting the various models of excellence that emerge.
Private Budget Schools (BPS) are Elementary and Middle Schools with school fees appropriate for families with low incomes. “The Civil Society Center of Delhi considers the number of BPS to be 400,000 with a total of 60 million children enrolled. They are promoted by the government and are giving a public service, offering lower and middle working class families an alternative school education at a cost appropriate to the possibilities of the poorest families,” says Dilip Thakore, Editor of EducationWorld.
A specially chosen sample of 2,458 respondents, consisting of 2,115 parents with children attending BPS and 343 BPS Principals and Teachers, was interviewed on the field by over 50 collaborators of the Market Research and Opinion Surveys Society based in Delhi Center for Forecasting and Research Pvt. Ltd. (C Fore) to evaluate 300 private schools in 143 cities and countries of India, taking into account 11 items of school excellence (teacher competence, academic reputation, co-curricular training, sports education, rapport quality-cost, leadership, etc.).
