Investing in education (English)

Raising primary school enrollment in low-income developing countries is an important policy goal. However, achieving this goal will require more than simply improving access to primary schools. Because access to post-primary education is an important determinant of primary school enrollment, it is equally important to expand and improve access to middle and secondary schools. In regions where enrollment rates are already acceptable, the focus of policy needs to be on improving school quality. The quality of available schooling is the single most important factor determining primary school completion.
