Ensuring a quality education for all citizens is one of the most important obligations of the State. It is nearly 70 years since governments everywhere recognised education as a fundamental right; since then, the global community has made repeated commitments to ensure Education For All. Most recently, in 2015, the world’s governments agreed a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030, which includes targets for ensuring 12 years of free, publicly funded, quality education for all – of which nine must be compulsory, and should include at least one year of basic pre-primary education – as well as basic adult education, lifelong learning, and education for global citizenship and human rights. Privatisation of education is the process by which a growing proportion of the education system is owned, funded, or operated by non-State actors. Private schools can be very simply defined as any schools not fully run and funded by the State, and can include both for-profit actors like private companies, and not-for-profit actors such as non- governmental organisations and faith groups. To understand all this global scenario that GCE made this paper.
