This report is written in partnership with the Global Student Forum to help you learn about the youth perspective on the different roles and impact of non-state actors in education. For many, a discussion on the role of non-state actors in education quickly boils down to a debate about whether private schools support or undermine good-quality education.
But the role of non-state actors impacts many more corners of the education sector, from the textbooks you use, the food in your canteens, any additional tutorial support you get, the skills you might learn at work and much more.
The report invites youth to join a call for governments to #RightTheRules which will ensure that non-state actor involvement does not compromise the promise of providing 1 year of pre-primary and 12 years of primary and secondary education free for all.
