EQUITY, INCLUSION and EDUCATION:
Examining Evidence on Low-Fee Private Schools
When: Thursday, October 6th 2:00-3:30pm EST
Where: World Bank I Building, 1850 I (“Eye”) Street NW, Washington, DC 20006, Room: I2-250
As part of the Civil Society Policy Forum of the 2016 World Bank/IMF Annual Meetings, you are invited to:
This session will launch a new report from the Global Campaign for Education, “Private profit, public loss: Why the push for low-fee private schools is throwing quality education off track.” It will also examine Education International’s campaign around low-fee private schools in Kenya. The findings will facilitate a dialogue between Northern and Southern civil society, the World Bank, and participants as to whether for-profit, low-fee private schools give poor families options for quality education or further marginalize the poorest groups.
