Public-private partnership schools and its implementation

Benefits of  this model:

1) No much reliance on government for the safeguarding of the quality education. Teachers as an entrepreneur will take care of it because it will bring competition for quality.
2) Teachers income depends on the ability to bring students. So they are solely responsible for their income. They will work for themselves, instead of doing just an obligatory job for a monthly salary.
3) Students will have the freedom to choose a class, not just school. (Funding children not school)

The process of the model:

1) Providing infrastructure by the govt.
Govt should first buy cheaper land from the landlord or take on the permanent lease and provide beginning infrastructure to schools. Permanent lease similar to building mobile towers where every month some amount (e.g. Rs 3000) is given to the landlord. A fixed amount of area (e.g. 1 acre) can be allocated. Beginning infrastructure with 2 to 3 classroom must be provided by the govt, but lease amount is not payable by the govt. Govt should streamline the whole process with keeping the documentation. Even poorly functioning, already existing schools can be turned to public-private partnership business model. Any teacher as an entrepreneur can apply for it and will be given 2 to 3 classrooms, and the number of entrepreneurs must be in surplus so that there is competition.

2) Teachers as Entrepreneurs with coaching center business model
Why coaching center business model is effective?
Teachers should run the schools, instead of any building owner. Each teacher will have its share of the money produced. A govt website can me made that will help in collaboration of teachers for becoming partners. Teachers should pay some amount of money for infrastructure spending of the government by rule every month. Teachers can pay any amount of money for school development by intent in order to survive the competition. At any time teachers can take over the school in their name, after paying the infrastructure money spent by the government.

2) Eligibility and Disqualification
In order to become a teacher (Entrepreneur), they must produce classroom recording or video lectures that meet the effective learning strategies along with a graduation degree.
Disqualification from teachership for 2 years if most students don't perform well in exams in his/her subject. For 2 years he/she can update his/her skills if he/she again want to become a teacher, and should pass an entrance exam along with producing evidence of updating skills.

3) Correspondence exams from Class 1 to Class 12
Exams should be done by a different centralized authority such as NIOS, to prevent corruption, malpractice in exams. It should provide the core syllabus which will act as guidelines. Can also bring personalized education. Link:

4) Fund student, not school
From students of a low-income family, each month some (e.g. about Rs 300) tuition fees can be given. And about half of the strength of school must be reserved for these students. Teachers can't deny for admission to low-income students if the allotted percentage is not reached.

5) Tracking attendance

It's important to track the attendance of low-income family students, as the government will pay to these students. So biometric Adhaar attendance for these students should be produced to get money. No payment should be done if attendance for a class is low, and measures need to be taken for the students, for not attending the class or school.

Glad to hear feedback or any loopholes in the system.
