A robust, quality education system in rural areas is the need of the hour, today. Generally, families shift to urban areas to provide better education to their children as the quality of education in rural areas is not up to the mark. Opening a school in a rural area is definitely a visionary decision & an act of appreciation. So, how exactly can you open a school in a rural area? Or what is the difference between opening a school in a rural location and urban location?
Well! The rule for starting any new project & its success remains the same, may you open your school in any location. So, what exactly that rule is?
The rule is: provide “value for money”. Parents should get value for every penny they invest in their child’s education. This means whatever fees you charge, they should feel it’s worth it & their child is obtaining benefit from it. Even if they compare your school with other competitor schools, they should find your school better.
But how would you do that? How would you change the perception of parents for better?
When initially your school doesn’t do well, parents create a bias against it, so it becomes difficult to convince them in your favour. So, what can help in such a situation?
You might have heard of a term called “Brand”. This brand is very important in creating an image before people. It represent quality of education, superior teachers, infrastructure, etc. In short, all these things in your school should be better than your competitor. Today, parents don’t look for a cheap school or cheap education for their children. If they would, they could have easily enrolled them in some government school. But they look for a reputed private school for their children so that they can give a lot more to them than basic education, by spending a little extra. So, as an entrepreneur, you have to decide what extra & special can you provide, to impress parents in your locality.
As a smart entrepreneur, you should look for a good, reputed brand to collaborate with. For a brand to be good, doesn’t require to be cheap or extra expensive, you are not meant to build a 5-star hotel like school in your village, you just need to set up a school which is better than what are established currently. So, when parents visit your school, they should feel “I wish I could go to this school as well”. Unless this kind of reaction comes, your school won’t work well.
For this you require right set of guidelines. A complete prior knowledge is indispensable before opening any kind of school.
