USAID Africa Education Regional Brief
This brief was designed to provide a snapshot of the region’s present situation in the education sector, by gathering information from various sources such as UNESCO, the World Bank, ILO, and USAID. In addition to these sources, this report contains Performance Plan and Report (PPR) data contributed by USAID, which are collected for internal learning and external reporting, and convey progress against mission objectives. Please note that we reviewed data from 2012 through 2018 and present the earliest and latest data available within this time interval. Sometimes, country data is available for just two years within this period and often, the time interval is quite small. Therefore, caution should be taken when looking at changes over time.
