ABSTRACT The main aim of this study was to investigate the impact of PPPs on Quality of secondary education in the Luweero district in Uganda. Simple random sampling was used to select respondents in the field and the questionnaires were used and administered to selected respondents while purposive sampling was used to select schools. Various concepts of PPPs are analysed and models of PPPs that preferred for improving the quality of the delivery of education on secondary schools in the Luweero district were clarified. The results of the empirical research support the conceptual analysis to the extent that public private partnership contributed to improving education quality through expansion of student access to schooling, delivering education to low-income families, financing school inputs and building school infrastructures and higher academic achievement. However, the running of Private schools normally depends on fees from students for offering quality education. Private schools set high fees to students that enabled them pay good salaries to teachers, building library with enough books as well as laboratories with enough chemicals, attractive working conditions for workers/teachers, example housing, electricity, water services and other allowances. Low-income families could not afford to pay the fees set by such schools. The government, therefore, should set salaries and allowances for teachers to motivate, attract and improve the working environment such as housing, electricity and water supply, building library with enough learning materials as well as build laboratories with enough chemicals in order to increase quality education for the children that to large extent from poor families. In addition, certain conditions for the successful implementation of PPPs such as government must remain active in directing projects and programmes in education planning rather than handing-over to the partners and the Government should establish a national policy framework that will drive PPPs in the public service delivery Through PPPs, can be made attractive and intellectually stimulating
