Nurturing the democratic debate.  
03-04-2002 10:00 pm Paris - Four out of every ten primary–age children in sub-Saharan Africa do not go to school, and of those who do, only a small proportion reach a basic level of skills.
This is one of the conclusions of a new report about to be released by UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics.
Education Statistics 2001 – Regional Report on sub-Saharan Region of Africa, is a comprehensive regional study of education in Africa. It examines the state of education in 49 countries and covers the 1998 and 1999 school years, providing a snapshot of all levels of education from pre-primary to tertiary.

The report, accompanied by a press release summarizing the contents will be launched on Tuesday, April 9. Copies will be available for the media in French and English from UNESCO’s Press Service, or online in PDF format from the Institute.
