Student enrolment goes up in Punjab, World Bank

A new report released by the World Bank calls for a reevaluation of education policies in the context of a dramatic increase in private schools for primary education in Pakistan.

The report presents facts and findings from a survey of all public and private primary schools in 112 villages in Pakistan's Punjab province, and lays out important policy options based on detailed data to facilitate evidence-based policymaking.

The Learning and Educational Achievement in Punjab Schools (LEAPS), the result of collaboration between the World Bank and researchers from Harvard University and Pomona College, says for-profit private schools have become a widespread presence in both urban and rural areas, providing parents another option for investing in their children's education.

Between 2000 and 2005, the number of private schools increased from 32,000 to 47,000, and by the end of 2005, one-third of enrolled children at the primary level was studying in a private school.

“This survey provides critical information on every aspect of the educational marketplace, including performance of all types of schools in Punjab,” said Yusupha Crookes, World Bank Country Director for Pakistan.

“It documents the dramatic changes in the educational landscape that have taken place in Pakistan in recent years. This report provides an excellent starting point for guiding educational policies which needs to take into account the relative strengths and weaknesses of private and government schooling.”
