Abstract

Improved school infrastructure quality positively correlates with student engagement, motivation, and academic achievement, emphasizing the need to bridge infrastructure disparities. The study’s objective was to compare the quality of infrastructure on student outcomes in public and Punjab education foundation-funded secondary-level schools. The general population of the study was the province of Punjab, including all public and Punjab Education Foundation-funded schools at the secondary level. The study was delimited to three districts of Punjab province. Through purposive sampling, 300 students were chosen from the public, and 300 from Punjab Education Foundation Funded Schools; the total sample was 600 students. The design of the study was a quantitative and cross-sectional survey. Data were collected through a 5-point Likert scale and interpreted through mean value, standard deviation, and independent t-test. It was found that PEF-funded schools generally have better infrastructure resources, conditions, and perceived quality than public schools. This is associated with positive correlations with student outcomes. Investing in public school infrastructure, establishing standards, empowering communities, leveraging technology, and fostering stewardship to improve student outcomes is recommended.
