New Report: Utilizing the Private Sector to Turnaround Schools in England

Yesterday, the Center on School Turnaround (WestEd) released a new report, prepared by Corbett Education Consulting LLC, that highlights how England utilizes the private sector to turn around chronically low-performing schools.

Policy Perspective: School Turnaround in England – Utilizing the Private Sector

This publication provides research and examples on England’s approach to turning around its lowest performing schools. The English education system utilizes private vendors to support chronically low-performing schools and districts. The introduction is followed by discussions of each of the three main strategies for private sector involvement, including: school-based management, turning around individual schools, and outsourcing the management of districts to private vendors. The paper concludes with lessons learned that could inform the implementation of similar efforts in the United States.
