Education in Africa: placing equity at the heart of policy. Continental report
This first edition, ‘Education in Africa – Placing equity at the heart of policy’, found that while many countries are taking important and significant positive steps towards reaching this goal, too many children are still left behind. It also found that the quality of schooling they receive varies widely. The report looks at six key topics: early childhood education, primary and secondary school, skills for work, teachers, education facilities, and means of implementation, and suggests that providing quality education for all children will require a complex set of interventions. It is hoped that the study will provide African governments with concrete guidelines and advice as they try to overcome the challenges they face.
