A new report titled “Low-cost private schools in Peru: The high cost of low quality?” by Clara Fontdevila, Paola Marius, María Balarin and María Fernanda Rodríguez examines issues associated with the proliferation of ‘low-fee’ private schools in Peru. Their growth has coincided with a lack of provision of public education in disadvantaged communities and a significant rise in the relative numbers of non-state education providers as well as the share of private education enrolment over the last two decades.
The study conducted by a team of researchers from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and GRADE with the support from Education International was presented on 19 February in Lima, Peru.
