International Development Questions: Private School Funding

It has emerged that the Department for International Development has been using UK funds to support private education facilities around the world. I believe that education should be free for all and not just the preserve of those with the means to access it. This begs the question why is the UK government using funds to support such institutions.

The minister stood by the Government’s decision. I find this extremely disappointing and will be working with my colleagues to ensure that this is brought to an end.
