The State must support the development of the private education offer

Even if they devote a higher proportion of state funding to education, countries with both a young population with low tax revenues have a limited capacity to finance the educational needs of their populations. The drive to improve access to education in developing countries is bearing fruit. Yet population growth, high levels of demand and overstretched national budgets put immense pressure on education systems. The development of the private sector, in all its diversity, could contribute to the collective education effort – on condition that governments fulfil their management, regulatory and monitoring roles properly.
