CAPE VERDE

Education

Although The Cape Verdean educational system is similar to the Portuguese system, over the years the local universities have been increasingly adopting the
American educational system; for instance, all the 10 existing universities in the country offer 4-year bachelor's degree programs. Cape Verde has the second best educational system in Africa, after South Africa. Primary school education in Cape Verde is mandatory between the ages of 6 and 14 years and free for children ages 6 to 14. In 2011, the net enrollment ratio for primary school was 85%. Approximately 90% of the total population over 15 years of age is literate, and roughly 25% of the population holds a college degree; 250 of these college graduates hold doctorate degrees in different academic fields. Textbooks have been made available to 90 percent of school children, and 98 percent of the teachers have attended in-service teacher training. Although most children have access to education, some problems remain. For example, there is insufficient spending on school materials, lunches, and books.

The total expenditure on education was 5.6% of GDP (2010). The mean years of schooling of adults over 25 years is 12.  LINK
