Togo: Enrolment rate in primary schools increased significantly over the past decade (2008-2018)

(Togo First) - The gross enrolment rate in Togolese primary schools was 126.8% last year. According to the government which disclosed the figure, this is far above the rate recorded in 2008 - 98% - but still below the 150% peak in 2015-2017. 

The increase over the past decade was driven by more children getting enrolled in pre-school (150,000 in 2018 against about 86,000 in 2013). Enrolment levels in Lomé especially were considerably better. 

Overall, these improvements have to do with the government's efforts through various programs such as the school canteens project and School Assur. 

Beyond gross enrolment rate, the rate of completion of primary education improved as well (from 84.4% in 2014 to 91% in 2018); similar to the net enrolment rate (from 82.9% in 2011-2012 to 93.8% in 2017) and repetition rates (-2.4% between 2015 and 2017).
