The report, titled In whose Interest? The UK’s role in privatising education around the world lays out the UK Department for International Development’s policies and programmes that are contributing to a privatisation agenda.
Each year, the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is spending millions promoting education privatisation in developing countries. Just as with the privatisation of education in England, our aid budget is being used to promote the interests of big business.
Take action and sign the Global Justice Now petition to tell the International Development Secretary that DFID needs to promote and support free, quality, public education – and put pupils before profit.
