Why parents prefer private institutes over government?




Private institutes have a quality reputation for maintaining high standards for discipline respect and values. The students who study in private institutes secure more opportunities for higher studies in well-established institutes.

What are private and government institutes?

Private institutes are independent of the interference of government and are completely administered by private bodies.

Government institutes are under the control of government and are funded by public revenue.

Why parents prefer private institutes over government?

Parents prefer private institutes because of various reasons:


        They provide better infrastructure. This includes furniture, labs, computer facilities, the latest technology, and equipment. These things are important for a better learning experience and an engrossing environment. There is a lot of research that shows infrastructure has a large impact on student’s outcomes. It affects learning through various components:

  • Light
  • Air quality
  • The flexibility of learning space

Private institutes focus and invest more in their infrastructures. Another research showed that 40% of schools don’t have indoor toilets, 72% of rural secondary schools are missing a science laboratory, these facilities are severely lacking in the government educational sector.

Clean and hygienic facilities:

For the students, a healthy environment is very important. For the awareness about the harmful irritants; that can cause disease or illness, the private institutions do different campaigns and competitions. They educate the students about cleanliness. They do proper sanitation. They take every step to ensure a healthy environment. However, the government educational sector lacks such campaigns and setups.

Extracurricular activities:

The private institutes help students to inflate their network which is beneficial for them for different job opportunities. Participation in extracurricular activities gives students high self-esteem and helps them to understand their potential in a particular skill. Participation in different activities also has a positive effect on grades. No proper extracurricular activities are observed in the government sector institutes.

Private institutes give larger salaries to their teachers because of which teachers focus more on their students and teaching methodologies. They give attention to each individual student. They check on the quality of teaching and learning techniques for students. They use the latest technology and captivating techniques to make student’s concept clear.

“Passionate teachers leave inspiring hug impressions on the hearts of their past and present students” (TY HOWARD)

Limited students:

Private institutes only take limited students so that teachers can easily pay attention to all the students. Overcrowded classrooms have a negative impact on students and their grades too. Consequently, every student gets proper attention related to studies which lead to them showing better results. 

English medium:

Private institutes are believed to be English medium. No doubt Urdu is our national language but in the era we live, English is a symbol of status. The ability to speak and write English properly allows people to advance in the professional world. Being able to speak in English also widens one’s horizon in communicating globally. However, most of the students in government sector institutes cannot speak or understand English.


Parents prefer private institutes over government institutes because they provide quality education, boost opportunities for jobs which ultimately lead to a more successful life.
