Segment 1- TED Talks- How private schools are serving the poorest Pauline Dixon at TEDxGlasgow
Seminal research in the slums and shanty towns of Asia and Africa shows not only the numbers of low-cost private schools around the world but why, how and by whom they are run and patronised. Dr. Pauline Dixon looks at parental choice, the comparison between government and low-cost private schools as well as innovative initiatives that are currently under way in India and Ghana such as vouchers and chains of private schools. The talk also considers what the wider world can learn from this market success story.
