Jyoti Joshi and Dr. Sunita Agarwal
Hygiene and sanitation are two integral components of overall cleanliness. Children are more vulnerable but highly receptive segment of the population. Therefore, schools can play an equally important role to that of family in bringing about behavioral changes and promoting better health with the tool of knowledge. A focus on school sanitation stems from the fact that children have a right to basic facilities such as school toilets, safe drinking water, clean surroundings, friendly environment and knowledge and information on water hygiene. Therefore, the present study is planned,” A comparative study of government and private schools for the facilities related to water hygiene.” In the present study, 32 schools were selected from rural Bikaner (Rajasthan), which comprised of 16 governments and 16 private schools. A self-administered observation schedule was prepared for the study. To find out the statistical interpretation of the observation for water related cleanliness (Water hygiene) in government and private schools. The t-test result shows on the bases of various parameters, t-statistic for water hygiene (-11.43), is less than the t-tabular (-1.65). Thus on all the parameters we reject the null hypothesis. Based on mean and test values, we can say that in all scenarios, private schools were found to be better than government schools in terms of maintenance of water hygiene.
