PUBLIC EXPENDITURE AND SCHOOL EDUCATION IN INDIA: WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO JHARKHAND
Keywords:Public Expenditure, School Education
Public expenditure provides resources for the universalisation of school education. The role of government is more important in developing and under developed countries; where the inequalities of income and other socio-economic problems persist. the paper highlights that the goal of free, compulsory, universal and quality based school education could become a reality only if there is a joint dedication between the central and state governments to investment in elementary education which contributes massive benefits to existing generation and upcoming generations. Many studies suggest that investing in education include the socio-economic returns, decline in acute poverty and exclusion of inequalities, fertility rates, demographic and health indicators; political and economic stability; dynamic positive externalities connected with public expenditure on education and better quality of life for everyone.
