Abstract: Public financing is critical in providing adequate resources for equitable expansion of secondary education. This paper discusses the trends in public financing of secondary education in West Bengal during 1980-81 to 2008-09. During this period the growth rate of public expenditure on secondary education in West Bengal is quite low at constant prices (1993-94). Hence it can’t keep pace with the secondary (classes V-XII) enrolment growth. Moreover, this expenditure is made mainly on non-plan head. However, the relative importance of secondary education in West Bengal has increased within the education sector during 1980-81 to 2004-05.
