Improving information systems: The case of Punjab Education Support Program

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The second paper in this panel will describe a recent effort by the government of Punjab, the largest province in Pakistan, to streamline its information management systems with a view to improve the timely collection and use of information about various aspects of the system of education in the province. This information system captures critical data regarding inputs like funds provided from the provincial to the district governments, other inputs such as distribution of free textbooks, and stipends for students. In addition, the database maintained by the Punjab Education Support Program (PESP) also contains information obtained through bi-annual school census. The paper will describe the ways in which the data is fed into a composite index consisting of a total of twelve indicators designed to measure the educational performance of the districts in Punjab and examine the strengths and limitations of the composite index.
