Among the biggest challenges that developing countries have to face is providing adequate educational systems. The workshop will offer a chance to take a new look at the possibility that the private sector could provide schooling suitable for developing the so-called "human capital", an essential condition for lasting social and economic development. Taking part will be James Tooley, Professoe of "Education Policy" at Newcastle University and founder of The Beautiful Tree Foundation; Franklin Cudjoe, Director of IMANI, Center for Policy & Education, Ghana and don Carlo D'Imporzano, founder of the Fondazione Monserrate. The key passages of their interventions will be later published on new media channels and in booklets published by the Istituto Bruno Leoni.
