The Achievement Gap Between Government and Private Schools in Pakistan
Learning outcomes in Pakistan have traditionally been poor. However, over the last two decades, the educational market place has changed substantially. In particular, enrollment in private schools has increased dramatically across a broad range of income groups in both urban and rural areas. Given the important role of private schools in Pakistan's educational landscape, there is an increasing focus on the learning gap between government and private schools. Using household-level data from rural and urban areas of Pakistan, this study estimates the extent to which private school students perform better than government school students.
