Africa’s top 5 education priorities

Benefits of Private Sector- University Collaboration

At present Africa is dealing with a brutal combo: its school enrolment rate is the lowest in the world while its dropout rate is the highest. While one doesn’t expect the same figures as the developed world, Africa lags far behind the rest of the developing world too; in 2010 Sub-Saharan Africa’s overall enrolment rate was 17% compared with 48% in South Asia, 57% in East Asia and 70% in Latin America. Mass failings are another huge problem, with a high proportion of students throughout the continent graduating with an education that does not adequately equip them for the working world or tertiary education.

This episode of Invest Africa discusses  the role of the private sector in collaborating with universities to develop real and employable skills.
