corporate social responsibility, secondary schools, district Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa


Private-sector educational entities require strong corporate strategies. To be effective in a globally competitive world, the Corporate Social Responsibility Approach must be embraced. This research examined corporate social responsibility in the district of Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and its effect on secondary schools in the private sector. Primary nature research and data were collected through a five-point Likert scale questionnaire distributed to private sector high school teachers to get the data about the impact of corporate social responsibility on organizations’ performance. The questionnaire was fielded to private sector secondary school teachers in order to get data about the impact of corporate social responsibility on the performance of secondary schools. The population of the study was 184 registered private sector secondary schools (140 boys and 44 girls) which included 900 teachers (who taught to class 10th students during the session 2017-18) in district Peshawar. A sample of 280 teachers (140 male and 140 female) in 70 private sector secondary schools (35 for boys and 35 for girls) were selected through equal allocation sampling formula. Mean, Standard Deviation and t-test were applied for analyzing the data. The Pearson’s correlation r was used to evaluate the variable effects. The result from the data indicated that all the four aspects of CSR have positive significant impact on the performance of secondary schools.
