The contemporary landscape of education in Cambodia: Hybrid Spaces of the 'Public' and 'Private'

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review

Abstract

In September 2014 at the Research Development Forum held in Phnom Penh, Heng Sour, a spokesman for the Cambodian Ministry of Labor encouraged private sector actors to provide educational services in the Kingdom:

I agree that the government must take responsibility to produce skilled workers . . . but it is also [in] the interest of the private sector to acknowledge that if they invest a dollar in a skilled worker or in productivity improvement, the return on their investment is higher. [. . .] So why does the government sector still need to stick to the classic principle that lets government alone do [this]?
