Trust in Government Schools Lower in Rural and Urban Households: IIMA Survey

Parent Interventions

A survey conducted by Right to Education Resource Center (RTERC) of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad has shown that parents in rural and urban areas prefer to send their children to private schools than government schools due to lack of trust in the government education system. About 70% of the households had one child going to private school despite the higher costs involved. They were even taking loans to cover the expenses for primary education. Lack of accountability, absenteeism among teachers and their focus on administrative work made parents wary of sending their wards t government schools. Private school fees ranged from Rs 12,000 to Rs 36,000 a year.
