Principal’s Forum: School Vouchers for Girls

School Choice Campaign organised a Principal’s Forum on 3 February 2010 at the Jain Dharamshala, Shastri Park, North Delhi as the first in the series of a yearly meet with the principals of empanelled schools of the School Voucher for Girls pilot project.

The objective of the Principals Forum was to provide a platform for these principals to better understand the implementation process and payment transfer mechanism as well as to assist them with major issues in mainstreaming voucher children previously studying in government schools.

The event began with an introduction of all the principals followed by a brief session on the School Choice Campaign and the School Vouchers for Girls pilot by Dr Parth J Shah, President, Centre for Civil Society. Dr Shah then opened the floor for principals to highlight the difficulties the schools encountered in the implementation of the SVG project. Most of the principals used this opportunity to raise their concerns which varied from administrative issues like parents not providing the necessary documents for admission to low attendance of the voucher students. This was followed by a presentation by Mr Deval Seth, Head of Strategy, ACCOR Services, on the systematic steps of “voucher payments”. Ms. Janaki Rajan, Professor at Jamia Islami and former Director of SCERT conducted the last session on the importance of parents counseling and pertinent issues arising during the course of the project.
