This is according to a survey carried out in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in May 2016, which revealed that almost 66% of these parents took out their children from private schools of their own accord.
The key reasons for this movement are ever rising education related expenses in private schools, while government schools are now viewed as offering good quality teaching which is free of cost as well.
The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has made tremendous efforts in the education sector which has improved parents perception about government schools across the province.
Around 96% of parents who have voluntarily moved their children from private schools to government schools, stated that they would send their next child to government school as well.
This movement of children from private to government schools is indicative of the trust parents are regaining in public schools.
It is an indication that the efforts and hard work to revive government schools are producing positive results.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education had commissioned the global award-wining development agency Adam Smith International to conduct the survey.
