Around 82% of parents in India whose children go to private or international schools feel positive about sending their children to Government schools if it assures superior facilities and quality education, a survey report by Axis My India revealed.
The India Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI) May report states that of those surveyed, 51% said that their children go to Government schools while 57% said they go to Private schools. In rural India 56% kids go to Government schools while 57% of urban India goes to Private schools. Only 1% said their children go to International schools, the report said.
The survey further reveals insights on consumer investment plans for the new financial year, perceptions on education infrastructure in India, and their interaction with new AI tools like ChatGPT.
“Our survey shows there is an obvious contrast in education infrastructure preferences between urban and rural areas, with overall a positive attitude towards government schools if they provide superior facilities and quality education. The report also highlights the increasing importance of AI tools like ChatGPT in the workplace, with a majority of young adults viewing it as an advantage to their work. These insights provide valuable information for businesses, policymakers, and educators to better understand and meet the evolving needs of consumers,” Pradeep Gupta, chairman, MD, Axis My India, said.
