Forum on Open Schooling for Secondary Education in Sub-Saharan Africa
In response to the growing demand and commitment to primary education, there has been an increase in the number of children who complete primary school throughout subSaharan Africa. The success in increasing completion of primary schooling is leading to a significant pressure on the places in junior and senior secondary schools. As a direct result of this, another hurdle emerges - how do we cope with this demand and provide secondary education to those who have completed primary school? As educational statistics show, in most countries access to secondary education remains the preserve of a selected minority. Therefore, a significant question we explored at the forum was: • Can open schooling at the secondary level respond to the need created by the EFA and MDG targets?
