A Comparative Study of the Facilities of Co-Curricular Activities Provided by the Government and Private High Schools of Peshawar

Said Qasim Muhammad Qasim


Due to growing population, the private sector in education is also contributing to educate the masses in Pakistan. With growing competition between the government and private sector, there is also a growing concern that the private schools do not give importance to co-curricular activities. A total sample size of 175 schools was selected with 132 from private and 43 from government high schools for boys, through proportional sampling methods and finally surveyed through simple random sampling technique. Questionnaire and personal observations were carried out to collect the data. The school heads were selected as respondents. Chi square tests and Priority Index were used for analyzing data. Results showed that the private schools were giving more importance to literary activities than physical activities. The government schools had trained teachers, open space and enough equipment for sports as compared to private schools. This study recommends the concerned authorities to ensure registration of the private schools based on the provision of facilities for co-curricular activities.
