What Matters Most for Engaging the Private Sector in Education

A Framework Paper Author: D. Baum, L. Lewis, O. Lusk-Stover and H. Patrinos

This paper provides an overview of what matters most for engaging the private sector in basic education. In many countries, private schools educate a substantial and growing share of the student population. The goal of this paper is not to advocate for private schooling, but to outline the most effective evidence-based policies that governments can use to orient these non-state providers toward promoting learning for all children and youth.
