[Full Text]






Quality, Technical Education, Perception, Parents.



This paper aims to present the perceptions of parents on quality in technical education with reference to quality of teachers, teaching and learning process, management and leadership, and infrastructure aspects. The study was conducted to 100 parents of students studying in seven selected engineering colleges in Srikakulam and Vizianagaram District of Coastal Andhra Pradesh, India. A well-structured questionnaire has prepared to collect the data and analyzed it with SPSS. ANOVA was employed to find out the significance of difference between variable. The study brings to light the possible constraints to be faced by the stakeholders.
