Abstract: The principal of this thesis is newlineand#61692; It was found that largest numbers (64%) of schools are private. Public schools viz. NMMC and ZP together accounted for one third (36%) of the total number of schools in the city. newlineand#61692; The bulk (85%) of students enrolment belonged to the private schools whereas students enrolment (15%) in both the public schools was too low. newlineand#61692; The growth of schools conforms to the pace of development of nodes/areas in time domain. For example, the Panvel Taluka is the oldest area and thus has the highest number of schools. newline As found, school management was dominant factor and other important component were student-teacher ratio, class size, trained teachers, employment status (permanent / temporary / contract) of teachers and years of teaching experience in influencing the quality of primary education. Among the household factors, parent s education, household income and occupation of father were vital factor, in promoting the academic performance of student.The type of school management is responsible for making policies conducive for academic environment of their school . The management also decides the criteria of admission, appointment of teachers, training requirement; curriculum and providing infrastructure facilities etc. As such school management is a very strong factor in influencing the academic achievement of students. Therefore, it is suggested that school management should modify their policies and program to improve the quality of education.It is suggested that there should be uniformity in infrastructure and physical facilities in primary schools. The curriculum should be identical for primary education. This may discontinue the practice of students shifting from CBSE to state syllabus or vice versa and may consequently maintain the uniformity in enrolment of students. This in turn, may reduce the variation in enrolments of students in different type of school management and narrow down the large gap in student - teacher ratio.
