The privatization of educational institutions through public-private partnerships in the school sector

In many countries, the privatization of educational institutions is being discussed. One option being considered is collaboration between public and private partners in the form of public-private partnerships (PPP). In the school sector, new opportunities may arise through targeted collaboration between public schools and private companies.
PPP has gained importance in many areas in recent years. The cooperation of public and private partners is intended to enable a more efficient use of resources and the pooling of expertise. In the school sector, this could lead to educational institutions benefiting from the experience and expertise of private companies, thereby creating an innovative school system.
