This report on Low-Cost Private Schools was authored by James Tulloch, Aline Kraemer, and Lisa Overbey for the nonprofit international development organization, Endeva. Below is an excerpt from the executive summary:
Low-cost private schools can help the poor bridge the basic education gap. Indeed, they already play a significant role in educating the children of millions of poor families throughout the developing world – charging the equivalent of just a few dollars a month in tuition fees. The bottom-up, demand-driven nature of low-cost private schools allows them to meet the specific needs of poor parents, many of whom choose to send their children to fee-paying private schools rather than have them attend free public schools. Low-cost private schools succeed where poor parents believe public schools frequently fail – meeting their demands for Affordable and Accessible education for their children, provided by teachers and administrators who are held Accountable for the quality of instruction and educational outcomes.
