In Whose Interest? The UK’s Role in Privatising Education Around The World
Report for Global Justice Now and National Education Union (April 2019)
Curtis Research undertook research for this report which examines how aid from the UK’s Department for International Development is promoting the privatisation of education through grants to education businesses, support for pro-private research and consultancy contracts with UK-based businesses, among other methods. It illustrates how privatisation is problematic in terms of equality, quality, and accountability in education, and how it is undermining public education systems.
