Developing Post-Primary Education in Sub-Saharan Africa
Because of the remarkable progress that countries in Sub-Saharan Africa have made toward universalizing primary school completion (a Millennium Development Goal), many young Africans are completing primary schooling and many more will do so in the coming years. As they seek opportunities for further education, the pressure to expand places in secondary and tertiary education, already strong at present, can be expected to intensify in the future. Finding a sustainable path for expansion is thus a challenge that all countries in the region are grappling with.
