This chapter illustrates the lack of available data that impedes the analysis of education in India in general, and of private and public schools in particular. In spite of recent developments in the education sector, the official data collection exercise on schools still only collects information on the so-called “recognized” schools. Large numbers of private schools are left out of the official data, as many of them are “unrecognized.” The first section of the chapter presents evidence on the relative sizes of private, aided, and government schooling sectors in India. The second section examines the relative effectiveness and per-pupil costs of private and public schools in India, and the final section discusses India’s experience with public–private partnerships in education.

Keywords:   education in India, education sector, recognized schools, private schools, per-pupil costs, public–private partnerships
