Khan, Khurshid Sana
My study aimed to explore the secondary school choice of the internally migrant Ismailisi from Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) in Karachi, Pakistanii. I became interested in the topic for several reasons. Firstly, there was a scarcity of research on the topic. An initial review of the literature indicated that though the education of migratory groups had been discussed in relation to refugee or diaspora education, there was scope to examine school choice in internally migrant populations. Secondly, the school choice process in the developing world had been paid inadequate attention (Srivastava, 2005, p. 70). Thirdly, my previous field studies in GB provided me with much food for thought.
