11 July in Paris- IIEP Strategic Debate "Privatisation or Public Investment in Education?"

Tuesday, 11 July 2017 
4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (GMT + 1)

This debate will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation into French

Policy-makers worldwide are trying to figure how best to organize, govern, and support their education systems. Some countries approach these issues with public investment in teacher professionalization and a focus on equity of student outcomes, while others use a market-based, privatization approach to education. The new book, Global Education Reform, documents the ideologically and educationally distinctive approaches three pairs of countries have taken in structuring their education systems: Chile and Cuba; Sweden and Finland; the United States and Canada.

The analysis concludes that the education sector is better served by a public investment approach that supports each and every child than by a market-based, competition approach that creates winners and losers. This volume explains how and why some children can lose in a privatized system and makes recommendations to ensure that all children receive equitable, high-quality educational opportunities.
