059. Pay grants based on current Enrollment rather than the previous year

Sometimes it’s little things that produce inequalities in education. One such rule is that schools are given grants based on their enrollments from the previous year. For schools that are developing, this means they receive less than they should for their enrollments. Given that POD exists and all records are digitised, there is really no need to work from a previous year’s enrollment. This is very important particularly for new schools who spend most of their time trying to figure out how to cover their shortfall. Because this only affects a relatively small number of schools, it goes largely ignored but for the schools themselves it can make a huge difference.
