Project: Public Private Partnerships in Basic Education

Client: Subcontract through AIR on behalf of USAID (EQUIP 1)


Marketing: Worldwide

Objectives: Explorations in Formation, Function and Sustainability.

As part of the Educational Quality Improvement Program (Classrooms-Schools-Communities), J&A was the prime researcher on a study of Public Private Partnerships in Basic Education. The purpose was to determine the nature of these partnerships in terms of how interventions were designed and implemented, how partners were identified, and how relationships were formed as well as the contractual/financial relationships and the probability of the continuation of activities after initial project funding has ended. The goal was to gain reliable information on which kinds of partnerships will most likely contribute to the sustainability of innovative educational interventions.
