SABER in Action - Guinea-Bissau : Building School Autonomy and Accountability (Английский)

A coastal country in West Africa, Guinea-Bissau has a population of approximately 1.8 million, with annual population growth of around 2.4 percent (2015). Its population is very young: 41 percent of residents are 14 years old or younger. Given its GDP per capita of US$573 (2015), Guinea-Bissau is one of the poorest countries in the world, with around 70 percent of the population falling under the poverty line of US$2 a day. Education in Guinea-Bissau is governed primarily by the 2010 Basic Education Law, which affirms the right to basic education for all, as guaranteed by the constitution. Access to education in Guinea-Bissau has improved over the last decade; however, the country remains far from achieving the goal of universal education. In addition, completion rates and learning outcomes are both low. Education in Guinea-Bissau is also constrained by limited resources, with less than 2 percent of GDP allocated to the sector. Furthermore, the education budget is almost entirely absorbed by salaries, making the education sector heavily reliant on donor support.
