In Peru, some public schools are run by the private sector, especially by religious organizations. Students in this type of school accounted for about 1.3% of all students in 2005. With subsidies for teachers' salaries, the private sector, especially the Catholic Church including religious congregations, have established schools for poor children mainly in marginalized areas of the city. Compared with similar types of schools in Chile and Venezuela, privately run Peruvian public schools have kept a traditional pattern of Public-Private Partnerships. Because there was no reform or unified regulation about these schools, each school has been regulated by respective relationships with educational authorities. Privately run public schools in Peru are characterized by financial support from religious congregations or other private entities, active participation of parents in the school for voluntary work, and the selection, supervision, evaluation, and training of teachers by a principal or the organization to which they belong. Privately run public schools have stimulated the Ministry of Education and schools around them by offering free education of good quality for poor children.
