Lessons Learned from the Punjab Education Foundation

Public-Private Partnerships in Education Author: Allah Bakhsh Malik

While PPPs are no panacea, they do offer governments a range of innovative mechanisms for expanding access to education, as well as for improving the quality and efficiency of education at all levels. In an MDG context, PPPs can particularly benefit countries that already have a significant private education sector, as they offer the prospect of rapid scaling up of delivery. As this report shows, turning the promise of PPPs into reality on the ground requires a supportive political environment, good program design, and effective implementation. Governments and development partners can draw many lessons from the Punjab Education Foundation’s experience with the introduction of its PPP programs in the education sector.
