The Consequences of Private Sector Growth on the Public Sector, Parental Choice, and Systemic Equity – Research Evidence from Nepal, and Broader Implications

April 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Dr Priya Joshi, UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report


Dr Helen Longlands, UCL Institute of Education


In this seminar, Priya Joshi will analyze the consequences of private schooling growth – whether there is a competitive effect of private schooling on public schools, how parents choose, and private sector perspectives. The research utilizes extensive survey and interview data collected from Nepal, as well as substantial secondary data analysis. By focusing on public sector, private sector and parent perspectives, her aim is to provide a systemic understanding of the consequences of a public-private system. She will also discuss the implications of her research for other low and middle income countries.
