What We're Reading: Learning Unleashed in the Economist

By Allison Kooser

This August, The Economist included an article celebrating the power of private education in the developing world. It’s a topic that we know well at Opportunity International – and our shared belief that private schools can be major change agents has motivated us to invest in private schools throughout Africa.

We believe that accessible, high-quality schools can make all the difference for students trapped in generational poverty.  And so when The Economist references “the fastest-growing group [of private schools] are small low-cost schools, run by entrepreneurs in poor areas, that cater to those living on less than $2 a day,” we know just the schools to which they are referring. They are the same types of schools in which Opportunity invests.
