School Choice Campaign (SCC) is a policy initiative to ensure that all children receive quality education of their choice. Our work aims to reform education policy to foster choice and accountability in schooling in India. The Campaign focuses on protecting access of the poor to Budget Private School and their quality improvements to ensure that parents have the choice of quality education at an affordable price. Our work also advocates greater autonomy for government schools, particularly in the hiring of school leaders and teachers. Further, the Campaign encourages more powerful School Management Committees (SMCs) and aims to influence the adoption of the per-student budgeting and funding model for government schools. SCC believes that the focus of a regulatory framework should be on learning outcomes and therefore it is pushing for amendments to the Right to Education Act 2009 and for greater innovation and competition in the education space.
