India: Using open school data to improve transparency and accountability
Mridusmita Bordoloi and Varun Kapoor (2018)
The main assumptions underlying the research are as follows: First, open data initiatives are powerful tools to improve transparency, hold schools accountable, and reduce corruption risks in education. Second, government-led initiatives are less likely than citizen-led initiatives to respond to users’ needs, engage them, and generate real impact, since they are often more supply- than demand-driven. And third, all users do not benefit equally from open data initiatives.
