1. Why does Shiksha Sankalp incentivize students rather than opening more schools?
At Shiksha Sankalp we believe that poor educational outcomes are largely a result of demand side constraints and not supply side constraints. Poor families find it difficult to afford the overheads of educating their children even when schooling is provided free of cost by the government.Therefore, we aim at incentivizing students while leveraging the existing network of schools.
