Developing post-primary education in sub-saharan africa: assessing the financial sustainability of alternative pathways

Abstract : Countries located at the South of Sahara are currently making significant progresses towards universal completion of primary education. Consequently the number of youngsters who knock at the door of secondary education is much increasing creating strong structural pressures on all segments of post-primary schooling. Identification of a strategy helping to cope with this issue in a sustainable way constitutes a major challenge for educational policies in all countries of the region. The research undertaken aims, in the diversity of national context, at exploring a large array of policy options (in terms of quantity, input mix and quality of services and modalities of financing) that could be considered by countries to cope in the medium term with the issue at stake. The research is based on the estimation of country specific education finance simulation models for 33 low-income countries of the continent
