Privatization of Education in Developing Countries: EFA Solution or Symptom of the Problem?

Your Name and Title: Helle Gudmandsen, Kampagnekoordinator/Education Campaign Coordinator

School or Organization Name: IBIS

Co-Presenter Name(s):

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Denmark

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): Educators and individuals in the education development field

Short Session Description (one line): This session will look at a growing trend in developing countries for international corporations to privatize education through for-profit & fee-based schools.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):  Increasingly, families in developing countries are being confronted with the option of paying fees to attend private schools being created and run by for-profit corporations, usually based in the US and Europe.   In the absence of adequate numbers of public or government schools and trained teachers, some are suggesting that privatization of education is the solution to ensuring that all young people have access to an education.  But for those of us who believe that access to a quality education is a human right, governments have a responsibility for developing a sustained capacity for providing free and public education.  Low-cost fee private schools are becoming more and more a trend, with teachers who are paid badly and don't have an education. This session will explore how we can build on and support non-profit and governmental educational institutions in developing countries to ensure that all children have equitable access to a quality and free education?

Hi, a major concern that parents have with public schools in African countries is declining quality of the education they provide. Even public office holders that have statutory responsibility to manage public education patronise private schools for the education of their children. But, quite a number of parents that cannot afford private options, either keep children out of school or patronise low quality religious alternatives, like the Quranic schools. These latter options are the subject of my presentation on Friday, 22nd November, 2013 @ 9am (GMT + 1).
