The Finance of Non Government Schools in Bangladesh.
Puttick, Edwin B.; And Others
The educational system in Bangladesh is unique in its finance and management structure. Elementary and higher education are mostly publicly financed, while secondary and intermediate education are mainly private organized. This study concentrates on private schools at the secondary, intermediate, and college level; and the difference in access between males and females and between urban, semiurban, and rural areas. The data were obtained from questionnaires sent by the National Commission on Manpower and Education (NCME) in 1968-69 to each known private school in what was then East Pakistan. A detailed analysis is made of the private schools in the areas of finance, costs, and enrollments. The size of government grants to private schools is explored, and information is given on the fee requirements of pupils of public schools. Per-pupil-expenditures are surveyed in order to examine the quality/cost relationship. Enrollment practices and size distribution of schools are analyzed. A copy of the questionnaire and frequency distribution tables are contained in the appendixes. (Author/MLF)
