This chapter will analyze the efficacy of the four types of systems discussed in the previous chapter—private operation with public funding, public operation with private funding, substantial private operation and funding, and purely public operation and funding—in terms of student outcomes. While substantial performance differences are detected between the different forms of systems, the chapter reveals that a simple division between public operation and funding on the one side, and private operation and funding on the other, does not seem to be fundamentally decisive for student performance. It demonstrates that the more intricate combination of public and private involvement in the two forms of public–private partnership seems to have important consequences for students’ educational performance. Also, while the advantages of cross-country evidence are highlighted in the chapter, it is not without its shortcomings; both the advantages and disadvantages are discussed here.
