Government has outlined criteria for setting up Model Schools under PPP mode for achieving RTE objectives says Dr Shashi Tharoor, Minister of State for Human Resource Development in a written reply to Rajya Sabha. He informed the house that the Ministry of HRD will set up 2500 model schools in non-educationally backward blocks based on the Kendriya Vidalaya (KV) template.

Under the scheme, the selection of PPP mode will be done for model schools through a bidding process in which each bidder will have to provide details about their financial and technical capabilities. The evaluation of bids would be based on the bidder’s track record in the field of education, financial standing and commitment and preparedness to provide necessary infrastructure and governance structure.

According to Minister, the model schools are to be set up based on the Kendriya Vidalaya (KV) template with infrastructure and faculty as per norms of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan. Each selected private entity has to enter into a concession agreement with the Government of India to ensure quality education in these schools. The concession agreement would be enforced by regular inspections, audit and monitoring for quality assurance. The financial support under the Scheme is conditional on fulfillment of performance parameters that seek to ensure the quality of education in these schools.

Minister is hopeful that such partnership will be helpful in achieving the objectives of the RTE Act by providing quality schools in educationally backward block, thereby helping ensure free and compulsory education to every child upto the elementary level.
