1. Officers use their authority and powers to siphon a part of the grant money
2. The general perception is that a Government job is supposed to be a seat to make black money
3. Set percentage commission is set for people who are responsible for allotting aid money
4. It is easier for educational trusts to receive money/grants from the Government
5. Lack of a department to check if the allotted money is being used in the right direction
6. Once the grants are provided, there is no defined process where the receivers transparently report how the grant is being spent
7. There is a lack of dedication from the teaching community
8. Many people bribe their way into the state education department and want to make the money back once they are appointed

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

Every school, be it primary or secondary should be brought under the local body administration and any decision including the appointment of teachers and staff must be brought under a mechanism comprising of the parents and the panchayath. And the funding should directly go to the panchayaths with a rigid system for measuring the performance of the teachers and the students. Community members should be encouraged to be mentors or volunteers to help the students in their academic pursuit. more  
unless & until accountability is not made such things will continue more  
Now, education has become a safe commercial business,. They are not going through the proper procedure. i would like to recommend a compulsory military training for youth i.e at least 2 years after 12th. more  
Transparency is the first step towards controlling corruption in any department. more  
If the strict disciplinary action will be taken in a case, you will see reduced data of corruption. It means, we have to become transparent for eradication of corruption from our society. more
