Developing Countries: Education
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, if he will make an assessment of the implications for the Government's policies of the finding of the UN Special Rapporteur on Education presented to the UN Human Rights Council in July 2019 that public-private partnerships in education that focus on involving private actors for service delivery have empirically largely failed, in particular in fragile countries.

We welcome the focus in the UN Special Rapporteur’s Report on the importance of the regulation in education systems, which is consistent with DFID’s position set out in the 2018 education policy Get Children Learning. We await with interest the publication of the study referred to in the UN Special Rapporteur’s Report.
