PN 2012-08: Addressing Late School Entry and other Demand-side Barriers to Primary Schooling

Cognizant of the country`s commitment to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), particularly regarding universal primary education (UPE), to give all children whether boys or girls a full course of primary schooling, this Policy Note discusses various demand-side barriers and bottlenecks to primary schooling. It shows that aside from UPE, it is important to attain other Education for All (EFA) objectives, i.e., keeping children in school, having them maximize their learning, and ensuring that they complete their schooling.
