How do other larger countries handle their education countries like US , China , Russia?on a serious note, the expectations you have cannot be fulfilled by centralised funding either from centre or state. centralised funding is detrimental to adaption to changing economic ground realities. that means, say a curriculum needs to be added or a teacher skill set needs to be improved in a particular city, by the time bureaucratic approvals happen the momentum has passed.
local governments need to have a greater say in public education. It’s not the case that they don’t have a say now, but it’s limited due to limited budgets. this would mean local governments need more revenues, which is not a stage the country is in right now except a municipal corporations. in this world view, you will be talking more about your city government than central govt. this also means you will be paying more local taxes over and above central taxes.
flip side of this approach is what happens in murican cities like Chicago, quality drops quite a bit if there is political instability in the city.
