International Support to Low-Cost Private Schools

Niemerg, MichaelIDP Foundation, Inc.2013

International support for the low-fee non-state education sector is extremely low, about 3% of all international aid for basic education, despite the sector's significant and rapidly growing presence. This paper looks at major bilateral (AusAID, CIDA, DFID, USAID) and multilateral (UNDP, UNICEF, World Bank Group) agencies' expenditure on specific low-cost private schools and NGO-sponsored programs.
