This chapter assesses how non-profit private providers can positively contribute to upholding the right to education by looking at the following: the equality of individuals; overcoming the legacies of racism, sexism, and colonialism; pedagogical innovations; and collaborative and cost-effective investment in education. Re-imagining education provision is essential for realising the equal right to education for all children. Education initiatives at the margins have found ways to empower, innovate, and re-imagine existing educational paradigms to better fit the lives and aspirations of those who have been excluded from formal education systems, from disadvantaged groups to poor communities. These systems have the ability to imagine and implement innovative learning strategies where states either lack the vision or the political will or capacity to implement those initiatives.

Keywords:   education rights, education equality, education provision, education initiatives, disadvantaged groups, poor communities, learning strategies
