Many low-income families in India are choosing to send their children to low-fee private schools rather than higher-priced private schools or public schools, says a paper published by the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education, located at Teachers College, Columbia University.

The paper says low-fee private schools are seen as a good alternative to public schools, which are generally perceived by Indian parents as inferior to private schools. The low-fee private schools attract low-income families by negotiating tuition amounts based on income and accepting students without a lot of formal paperwork.

The findings include observations from 10 case-study schools—five urban and five rural—and interviews with 60 parents.
