Habib, Zahida
Journal of Educational Technology, v7 n4 p35-41 Jan-Mar 2011
Quality of Education, especially at Primary level, is an important issue to be discussed at the International Forum. This study highlights the quality of primary education through a comparison of the quality of Community Model Schools and Govt. Girls Primary Schools in Pakistan. Community Model Schools were established under Girls Primary Education Project (GPEP) (Phase I and Phase II), with the cooperation of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). This paper focuses on the study of the effect of facilities, qualifications of headmistresses, dropout rate, results, and co-curricular activities on quality performance of both types of schools. Case study of six Community Model Schools and Govt. Girls Primary Schools were conducted for an in-depth study of the school's performance. The views of the heads of institutions, teachers, students, parents and administrators were collected through semi-structured interview schedules. The researcher personally visited the sample schools one by one to conduct these interviews. All the interviews were video-recorded. Data collected was then analyzed. It was found that Community Model Schools were performing better as compared to Govt. Girls Primary Schools in respect of school results, educational environment, co-curricular activities organized in the schools and overall quality of education.
