This was a very slanted piece in my opinion clearly arguing for an increased role of private providers in the what is been termed the 'education market'. It is most interesting the blog on the World Bank page has little hard quantitative or qualitative data to back up the assertions made in the blog about the role of private providers in education. While there are numerous forms of Public Private Partnership and provision of services they each need to be carefully examined within given national and political context this piece failed to do that. What is most worrying but not surprising was that the issue of the Right to Education and obligation that this International Human Right places on the State was not mentioned at all.
