The Liberia Education Advancement Program

The Liberia Education Advancement Program

This report highlights key issues surrounding the Liberia Education Advancement Program (LEAP), a public-private partnership (PPP) in which Bridge International Academies (BIA now NewGlobe) is a major provider. The report found the following: Lack of evidence-based expansion and scale-up of the LEAP program; Limited transparency, participation, and accountability regarding decision-making, availability of information and finances related to LEAP; Lack of respect for the rule of law; Conflict of interest; Unequal playing field for LEAP providers - Preferential treatment of BIA; Fundraising and sustainability issues; and Unfulfilled verbal promises to schools and communities.

This report shows once again that PPPs are not a sustainable solution to address education challenges. It reiterates the importance for States to prioritise the strengthening of public education over its delegation to commercial actors whose goal is more profit-making than realising the right to education for all.
