1. A part of the Government funds never reach the education system and are lost to corruption
2. Officers responsible for releasing these funds are themselves a part of the corrupt chain
3. Once the Government education system receives the funds, majority of it is not utilized in the right place
4. Aid funds are misused
5. Educational institutions show higher expenses that what they actually incur and the management pockets the balance
6. Some people start educational trusts just so that they could get funds from the Government/NGOs
7. It is easy for people with political connections to get access to such funding
8. Some schools have no/very less number of children studying but they still get funding from the Government agencies
9. Low quality mid-day meal is provided to the children but the money charged is very high
10. Some Government teachers have other businesses, professions they are engaged in on the side. more

Society as well as Govt. must know the difference between EDUCATION and BUSINESS. Both cannot go side by side. Society should make move and FORCE all institutions and GOvt. to remove TEACHERS- Who are destroying future of CHILD- as they donot know any thing regarding subject and deal with Child psychology. more  
1. The government shall clearly display in their website actual amounts sanctioned under specific schemes, the date of release of funds, the expected period of utilization. This information shall be in public domain and it shall be given large publicity in all local newspapers, radio channels, and cable TVs. 2. Each school also shall put clearly and legibly on their notice boards the above details: the actual fund received under each category and date of their receipt and expected period of utilization. Each school shall also put on their notice boards the beneficiary students and how the funds are utilized in other schemes such as mid-day meals. 3. Make the fundings, time and duration of fundings, and actual expenditures with details of beneficiaries transparent to completely avoid leakages. 4. Allow public to report leakages and corruption. 5. Institute a sound mechanism to investigate complaints and punish guilty. 6. Prepare a status report for each school each year. 7. Revise funding and control measures from these status reports of the school concerned. more  
Now Education is left at the hands of teaching community who are not at all dedicated and not doing their minimum to justify their earning. The quality of teaching, if at all, is awful and future generation of students are left in the hands of such teachers. To add this there is huge corruption happening at the entire structure of Education Dept/Schools. Govt need to handle this issue with strict hands and the Govt is very much aware how these things are happening in the department. more  
Until & Unless every govt employee is hard working & honest, there would be no change. We need to change mindsets. It is not that they are caught red handed & punished. They should avoid wrong doings from heart. People should abstain wrong doings not from fear of punishment but eternally. more  
Teachers recruited should have the passion for teaching. They should not be allowed to join only for the sake of money-getting fat salaries sitting at home or doing some other businesses.There needs to be regular check on the teachers. No absentee without a solid reason and applying for the leave--otherwise deduct the salary. Regular absentees should be out of the job. Once the Principal asked one of the teachers for being absent for so long but drawing full salary, why? The reply the Principal got was, "Ma'm I need money so I am not going to resign even if you ask me to do so". If there are no checks on them this is going to be the state of affairs. more
