It is worth noting, however, that the percentage of pupils in private primary schools has risen considerably during the last decade, and the primary level is the major growth area for the private school sector as a whole.

Private schools are central to the reproduction of social inequality. For example, whilst in the UK providing only about seven per cent of the school population, about half of the undergraduates at Oxford and Cambridge still come from the private sector. Private schools have long been associated with privilege and elitism. While this traditional elitist aspect to the private sector is still central, the private school sector is actually far more diverse that is usually acknowledged. It now includes many small schools and faith-based schools that may not offer the traditional advantages of the private sector but which provide a particular environment deemed desirable by parents. In spite of their educational and social importance, there has been very little academic research and writing on private schools. The proposed book will be the culmination of Professor Walford's research into private schools over the past twenty years.

India is making all possible efforts for mass education and equalization of educational opportunities for its people. But the task of providing adequate educational facilities for its vast population proves to be too heavy a burden for the government. Private schools, therefore, have made a niche in the country. This book makes a comparative study of government and private high schools in Mizoram regarding different aspects—infrastructural facilities, teachers, qualifications, training, workload, salary and other benefits, scholastic as well as co-curricular activities, academic achievements, and parents' expenditure on their children's education. The study of socio-economic status of parents and their preferences for schools also make part of the book.

Not much has been written about the private education sector in Singapore despite the fact that the sector houses about 300 private education institutions (PEIs) and enrolls about 150,000 students. Private Education in Singapore: Contemporary Issues and Challenges is an exciting book that aims to fill a gap in the literature. In the book, the author offers an extensive discussion on (i) the key elements of the sector — types and features of the PEIs, (ii) the regulatory framework for private education, (iii) students' aspiration and the impact of the ASPIRE report on PEIs, and (iv) the provision of external degree programme through transnational partnership. The book also tackles the hotly debated discussion in relation to academic quality and standard of PEI courses. The author identifies the reasons — some of them have more characteristics of a myth — and suggests a number of ways to overcome the issues and challenges.
