Since my talk at IIM-A on school vouchers on February 11, i have been off the blog. My father underwent a by-pass surgery (actually five bypasses) and the recovery has not been as smooth as expected. He is now stable and  moving up on the improvement curve.

I will write about the IIMA talk next time. Our big event was the release of the first assessment of the Delhi Voucher Project started in the academic year 2007.  The assessment was done by the Centre for Media Studies. Delhi Education Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely spoke highly of the ‘Fund Students, Not Schools!’ idea and promised to launch voucher scheme in Delhi.
