This book provides a series of general, overarching assessments of the promise provided by public–private partnerships, focusing on specific partnerships in particular countries. The conventional division between the public and private sector—between publicly financed and managed schools versus privately financed and managed schools—is examined, while initiatives that are publicly funded but privately managed are evaluated. Public–private partnerships can be divided into four broad categories: Publicly funded resources that are publicly managed, privately funded resources that are privately managed, publicly funded resources that are privately managed, and privately funded resources that are publicly managed. For the purposes of this book, publicly funded privately managed schools are divided into two subcategories: Schools where the nongovernmental authority approached the state for funding; and schools where private authorities have been invited to manage.

Keywords:   public–private partnerships, publicly financed schools, privately financed schools, nongovernmental authority, private authorities
