Back to the blackboard: Looking beyond universal primary education in Africa

"Education is the driving force behind any strong economy and a prerequisite for social and economic growth. It creates opportunities and provides societies with a better educated and skilled workforce which is necessary for stimulating development. The report's five chapters examine the state of play of education on the continent and highlight the challenges which need to be addressed. This report seeks to get governments, donors and policy makers to start thinking and planning ahead to cope with the expected successes of UPE."
