Attitude, Private Tuition, Secondary School Students Guardians.


Balanced development of various human qualities is possible only through proper education. Like various basic needs, education is now considered a basic need. Every parent wants to give high-quality education to their children, but due to professional reasons or lack of time parents fail to give proper guidance to their children. So nowadays parents are becoming dependent on private tuition to give proper education to their children. Secondary-level courses are long and difficult and therefore require consistent supervision. Parents are willing to give private tuition to their children to provide them with consistent guidance and extra support in their educational careers. The study aims to find out the differences in attitudes towards private tuition according to the educational qualifications of parents and to find out the nature of the attitude of guardians considering differing test items. A descriptive survey method was used in this study. The purposive sampling method was used for data collection. For data collection, 56 parents were selected from two districts. Only those parents selected as the sample, whose children study in secondary school. A self-made questionnaire was developed for data collection, and standardized by the expert. The scale was developed using Likert's method of summarization to assign a five-point rating to each item. The questionnaire used for data collection consisted of 47 items including positive and negative items. In this study, the percentage of opinions of the respondents on each item is shown by the graphical presentation. Finally, after analyzing the data it was found that parents have a positive attitude towards private tuition. Guardians with lower educational qualifications expressed more positive views on private tuition. So here it can be said that parents are largely dependent on private tuition for their child's education.
