This was a comparative research project to study classroom management strategies of English language teachers (ELTs) at secondary level public and private sector schools in Lahore. The purpose of the research was to identify the strategies used by the English language teachers. A total of 200 English language teachers: 100 from public sector and 100 from private sector schools were selected using the random sampling technique. A close-ended questionnaire was designed by the researcher to collect data from the respondents. The data were entered into the spreadsheet of SPSS version 21.0. Different statistical techniques were used to analyze the data. Mean scores along with standard deviations were calculated for descriptive statistics. For inferential statistics, independent sample t-tests and one-way ANOVA were used. Two strategies like specific teaching strategies and planning and support were commonly used by the respondents. Significant differences were found in the strategies used by public sector and private sector ELTs. Policy recommendations such as organizing teacher training workshops would encourage ELTs to use classroom management strategies effectively.
