research shows that the simpler the funding formula, the easier it is for all stakeholders to monitor the school grant.
School grants can also give schools the opportunity to make their own decisions on how to use the subsidies, which can enable more informed choices based on actual needs, and increased participation from everyone involved in the decision process. This can in turn stimulate school-community partnerships.
On the positive side, there is likely less leakage in the transfer of funds directly to schools. However, for a school grant scheme to be effective, a country must have a functioning banking system
