Private Schools: A Revolution In Global Education?

March 30 2014 – Toronto Star – Charles Kenny –
In developing countries, private schools are a big deal, too, and they play a very different role: for just cents a day, they are giving some of the world’s very poorest children a chance to escape the absolute deprivation their parents have suffered their whole lives.  And by showing what can be achieved in schools where teachers actually make an effort to teach and where principals actually care about results, they are laying the basis for a revolution in global education.

The good news, however, is that across the developing world, tens of millions of parents are refusing to accept that their kids sit in class day after day learning nothing. Instead, they’re moving their children to private schools. And these aren’t just wealthy parents. Extremely poor mothers and fathers are taking some of their limited income and using it to ensure that their kids can have a better life.
