Policy trade-offs in the financing of education in Sub-Saharan Africa

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While still many countries are facing difficulties to achieve Education For All targets, policy makers in SSA have a growing recognition of the importance of the quality of education, as demonstrated by increased participation in regional studies such as SACMEQ and PASEC. While meeting universal primary education remains an acute challenge for many countries, the demand for qualitative improvement has become a major policy focus since more evidence of low achievement has been discovered. The growing demand at upper levels of education, both in terms of quality and quantity, adds another dimension to the identification of policy trade-offs. This presentation will highlight the importance of a policy mix that enables African countries to reach the neediest populations, and to promote innovative opportunities for those who are capable and willing.
