Increase in the coverage of education to ensure that all children go to school has been addressed by government and private agencies. The concept of a public-private partnership (PPP) recognizes the existence of alternative options for providing education services besides public finance and public delivery. Governments around the world are exploring different ways to involve the private sector in providing education. PPPs involve the public and private sectors working together to achieve important educational, social and economic objectives. They represent a move away from the traditional model of government procurement for the delivery of public services. Recent years have seen an expansion and broadening of the private sector's role in the financing and provision of education services in many countries. A key trend has been the emergence of more sophisticated forms of private involvement in education through public private partnerships. Hence public private partnership is contractual relationship between the Government and the Private Sector for a specific project for which the responsibility of providing public service like education rests with the Government but the infrastructure provision or service delivery is entrusted to private sector . The paper disseminates knowledge about the role of PPPs in the field of education and ends up by giving succinct recommendations to improve public private partnership.
