A New Education Scheme for Japan: Importing Education PPP Structures from England and Scotland (Part 1)
Tachioka, Hiroshi; Campbell, Joel R.
Management in Education, v20 n3 p9-14 2006
Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) play a very important role in the development of social, health, welfare and education worldwide. Most PPP projects have been in the social, welfare and health fields. However, in recent years, PPP projects also play more active role in education. PPP projects in education have evolved from the mere sponsoring of school sport teams and events to large and complicated projects. Recent PPP project schemes include Partnerships for School (or PfS, commonly employed in education settings as Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) program) and Non-Profit Distribution (NPDO) schemes in the UK, as well as Hybrid Private Finance Initiative (PFI) schemes in Japan. In this first part of a two-part article, the authors consider the similarities and differences of these three project types, their strengths and weaknesses, current development of such projects and requirements for improvement and successful operation in Japan. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table and 7 notes.) [For Part 2, see EJ805873.]
