The studies concerning private versus public education have been critical in both advanced and emerging economies. Thus, this thesis tries to answer two questions regarding the performance of public and private schools, and the effects of school factors on school performance. Therefore, the thesis applies quantitative analysis methods, education production function, and employs data from the Ministry of Education of Mongolia and National Statistics Office of Mongolia. Based on the comparison analysis, private schools outperform public schools by some distance. Then, according to the estimation results, teacher qualification and library affect school performance positively. In contrast, school size, class size and student-teacher ratio have a negative effect on school performance. Besides, having sports hall does not affect student performance either positively or negatively.
