A 2010 study of Indian schools by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that teacher absenteeism fell by 21 percentage points with camera-monitoring of classrooms and linking of teachers salaries to their attendance. However, these are not palatable moves for the government. In such a scenario, the government should just scale back its spending in the sector while facilitating greater private sector participation. As it is, parents, even in the rural areas, see better value in private school enrollmentthis has increased from 18.7% in 2006 to 29% in 2013, as per ASER 2013. The government, thus, would first need to roll back the Right to Education which unnecessarily burdens private schools. Next, the spending on students could be transferred to guardians directly as cash transfers, giving them the choice to shift wards to private schools. This would also create greater employment opportunities for trained teachers and could perhaps enthuse government teachers to look at private sector employment where their performance can be monitored better.
