Scouting Schools: The Myths and Meanings of Parental Choice in Education

Parental choice in schools is at the center of a sizeable body of research on education in India. These studies cover a range of issues: from parents’ views on fee structures and regulations to the influence of parents’ socioeconomic conditions on their choices, as well as the factors they take into account while choosing schools for their children. Many of these papers focus on parents from urban poor backgrounds, especially in light of an increase in the number of private schools run for the poor.

This paper on Parental Choice seeks to question that thought and investigate whether parents, faced with a diversity of options, are truly able to exercise their right to choice.
