Private Sector Blamed for Inequalities Among Pupils

Several international CSOs state that the private sector involvement in education in Africa creates inequalities among pupils

According to a report released by several international civil society organisations (CSOs), the private sector involvement in education in Africa creates inequalities among pupils.
 
In a joint statement, the organisations state that, “Privatisation policies increase inequality in access, do not guarantee quality and undermine the notion of education as a public good,” furthermore, “Increased private sector participation in education is a strong driver of segregation and inequalities of opportunities.”
 
The report, which focuses on the progress made in regards to the Millennium Development Goals in Africa, was compiled the African Development Bank, the Economic Commission for Africa, the African Union Commission and the United Nations Development Programme.
