MetadataShow full item record
The 2015 Public Private Partnership Act makes provision for policy stability in order to reduce private sector uncertainty on investment, develop institutional capacities for technical analysis, monitoring and management of public private partnerships (PPP Act, 2015). Through the use of a comparative research design, this paper examined whether secondary schools under Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement are more efficient in regard to UCE pass rate and enrollment when compared to schools which are not under partnership. The study further examined whether management styles impact efficiency of secondary schools. Using primary data from a sample of 95 secondary schools in Mukono district we find that Non-PPP schools are more efficient than those under PPP in regards to pass rate. However, in respect to enrollment, schools under PPP were found to be more efficient and management was found to be significantly impacting on the efficiency of schools. On this ground a number of recommendations are made to ensure that PPP is of greater benefit to Ugandans.
