The role of Private Sector in education



The private sector is usually composed of organizations that are privately owned and not part of the government. These usually includes corporations (both profit and non-profit), partnerships, and charities.

An easier way to think of the private sector is by thinking of organizations that are not owned or operated by the government. For example, retail stores, credit unions, and local businesses will operate in the private sector.

1.       Private education institution

Private sectors have become a necessity for contemporary Pakistani society since the government has failed to provide quality education for its population. A majority of parents, even those from lower income brackets, send their children to private schools, college and universities so they can receive an education that will enable them to be competitive.

2.      Curriculum of Private Sector

Private sector has the flexibility to create a specialized program for students. For example, private sectors may use art or science in all classes, or take children on extended outdoor trips that blend lessons across the curriculum. Private sectors can create their own curriculum and assessment systems, although many also choose to use standardized tests.
3.      Quality of Teaching and Learning
Quality of teaching and learning is a main factor in the rapid growth of private
educational institutions in Pakistan. The popular perception is that quality is much
better in private sector than the government sector. The extent to which this
perception is true is a matter of debate. Generally, quality is hardly questioned as far
as high-cost private school chains which cater to the elite are concerned.
4.      Private sector teachers training
Private sectors arrange different training workshops and exposure experiences for their teachers. Such opportunities are offered to teachers with 2-3 years teaching experience. Teachers sign a bond that commits them to serve the schools, colleges for a specified period, after receiving this training. However, training opportunities are not equally distributed among teachers. Training and professional development opportunities for ‘medium level’ teachers are limited whereas teachers in what is classified as ‘low level’ hardly get any opportunity to attend training courses.
5.      Focus on Personal Development
While the major focus at most private high sector of education are getting you ready for future, your personal maturation and development go hand in hand with that academic preparation. That way, hopefully, you emerge from your high school, college and university with both a degree and some great purpose for your life and understanding of who you are.
6.      Provide Safety
Private sector is generally safe places. Access to campuses and buildings is carefully monitored and controlled. Because it usually have fewer students than a public school, it is easier to supervise the institute population. The private sector provides safety for the student’s .Ensure the parents that their child is in the safe environment. 
7.      Admission Standards
A private sector in education, on the other hand, accepts any student it wishes to according to its academic and other standards. It is not required to give a reason why it has refused to admit anyone. Its decision is final. They perform better rules and regulation of the institution.
8.      Discipline
Private sector students are governed by the contract which they and their parents sign with the school. It clearly spells out consequences for what the institution considers unacceptable behavior. They improve the behavior of the students in the right way. They perform their best duty to maintain the discipline of the institution.
9.      Superb Facilities
Libraries, which are now called media centers, are a focal point of the very best private high schools such as beacon house and other private institution. Money has never been an object at those and similar older schools when it comes to books and research materials of every conceivable kind. But media or learning centers are also the center piece of just about every private institution.
Private schools also have first rate athletic facilities. Many schools offer horseback riding, hockey, racquet sports, basketball, football, swimming as well as dozens of other sports. They also have the facilities to house and support all these activities. Besides professional staff to manage these athletic programs, private schools expect their teaching staff to coach a team.
Extracurricular activities are a major part of private high school programs as well. drama clubs can be found in most schools. Participation, while optional, is expected. Again, the teacher’s guide or coach extracurricular activities as part of their job requirements.
