This research has been conducted by the Department for International Development as a part of DFID Education Rigorous Literature Review.
The research question driving the review is: can private schools improve education for children in developing countries? The conceptual framework set out a number of hypotheses and assumptions that underpin the polarised debate about the potential and real contribution of private schools. These are interrogated through a rigorous and objective review of the evidence and findings are mapped on to an evidenced theory of change.
