The GoS aims to contract credible Education Management Organizations (EMOs) from the private sector to manage and improve the functioning of public sector schools by introducing innovations, modernizing the education system, addressing management gaps, maintaining and upgrading the school facilities (where required), and cooperatively working along with teachers, schools’ staff, school management committees, surrounding communities and local tiers of the Education and Literacy Department. In order to improve the standard of education in the Province of Sindh, the GoS, acting through the ELD, envisages a Public Private Partnership model, for the introduction of EMOs in Sindh.
The Project shall be structured as a multi-year management contract, which shall include, inter alia, the responsibility of managing and operating select public sector schools and achieving the key performance indicators set by the Government of Sindh. The ownership, however, of the public sector schools will remain with the Government of Sindh.
