The provision and financing of quality secondary education through Public Private Partnerships in Mauritius - a success story

The study shows a public and private partnership (PPP) model which has been the successful in the development of secondary education in Mauritius. The private education sector has contributed significantly to the high literacy rate in Mauritius When the country became independent in 1968, the State provision was about 6 percent of this sub-sector of education and the private sector accounted for more than 94 percent. The Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) at secondary education level has more than doubled (from 30 percent in 1968 to nearly 70 percent in 2005). There is a wide disparity in unit costs between State and private secondary schools. Unit costs are highest in State secondary schools. Despite this cost difference, it is noted that the differences in pass rates between State and Private secondary schools especially at the HSC level are not significant taking into account that private secondary schools enrol students whose performances are generally lower at the CPE level than those admitted in State schools
