Public-Private Partnerships in Education: Insights from the Field
Davies, Brent; Hentschke, Guilbert
School Leadership & Management, v26 n3 p205-226 Jul 2006
Despite extensive attention (positive and negative) devoted to the philosophical, public policy and political dimensions of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in education, little attention has been devoted to their managerial implications as well as the broader organizational context (strategic alliances) within which they are a special case. In this paper we seek first to identify what they are and then examine PPPs in education that have been recently created and are operating in England. It is worth noting that PPPs appear to be indistinguishable from the larger set of strategic alliances in fields other than education, and their recent arrival in education reflects its evolution towards a multi-sector, alliance-oriented field.
