Shahrukh Rafi Khan, Sajid Kazmi and Zainab Latif, SDPI
The objective of the paper is to suggest ways to make government (by far the largest provider) rural primary schooling delivery more effective. We compared the institutional effectiveness of rural primary schooling delivery of the government with the NGO and private sectors. Our main findings are first that the NGO schools were the most successful and second, that “good management” is the key ingredient for sound schooling. Further, if meaningful “participation” is to be achieved in government schools, the power relations of administrators, teachers and parents have to be changed.
