This chapter discusses the one initiative to talk back to an uncritical promotion of education public private partnerships (PPPs). It provides a framework to evaluate the implementation of education PPPs using human rights law. The chapter draws on international human rights law, national constitutions, civic activism, and research collaborations to assess and reframe portrayals of education PPPs. It reviews aspects of the growth of privatisation in education, forms of education PPPs, and some of the critiques that have emerged from researchers and activists. The chapter outlines the processes that led up to the adoption of the AP, as a key initiative guiding an approach of how to address education PPPs. It looks at some ways in which a legal framework, such as the AP, can be useful in complementing social research and how social research can alert lawyers and policy communities to the nuance of practice, and forms of social activism.
