Abstract

This study aimed at analysing the factor of parental choice for public-private schools in the area of Rawalpindi-Islamabad, Pakistan. For this purpose 150 parents, having at least one child attending school, were approached. Dependent variables in the present study are number of child in private school, number of child in public school, number of girls in private school and number of boys in private school. Independent variables are parent’s income, parent’s education, private school fee, quality of education, confidence building, infrastructure and values. Negative Binomial Regression was used and it was found that quality of education and mother’s education are significant factors in sending girls to private school. Parent’s income and private school fee are positive significant factors in sending children to private schools and negative significant factor in sending children to public schools. The constructs like quality of education, confidence building, infrastructure and values are found to be insignificant.
