Value Chain Actors in the Education System



In order to ensure the high quality of an education system, there are many services that we need to consider. The costs of these services are, in many policymakers’ minds, prohibitive, so much so that they would put them off. Transportation, facilities, healthcare: there are admittedly large price tags attached to each of these things. While private schools may invest in the services that they need, the cost can be too much for public schools to handle. In these instances, central services may be the right solutions. Central labs, central libraries, and central health services can be established as private entities, which school can then pay to use on a subscription basis. Especially in urban areas, where resources are stretched thin, this subscription basis could prove to be very effective. When we think of comprehensive reforms in terms of value chain and resource aggregation, we see that there are a lot of ways to save money.
