Sub-Saharan School Enrolment on the Increase – UNESCO

Investment in education by sub-Saharan African countries is paying dividends, with more children than ever before now attending school, says UNESCO

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) says that investment in education by sub-Saharan African countries is paying dividends, with more children than ever before now attending school.

In its new report, the organisation states that despite increasing their overall spending on education by six percent each year since 2000, many of the region's nations are still far from the United Nations-set goal of quality education for every child.

Director of UNESCO's Montreal-based Institute for Statistics, Hendrik van der Pol, points out that, "The positive development is a reflection of increased commitment by sub-Saharan Africa to invest in education."
