Expanded access to and improved quality of secondary education in Sub-Saharan Africa are key ingredients for economic growth in the region. This Secondary Education in Africa (SEIA) synthesis report makes this point by bringing together a significant volume of analytical work sponsored by the World Bank and by many African and international partners. At the Crossroads: Choices for Secondary Education in Sub-Saharan Africa argues the case for broad and equitable access for a basic education cycle of 8 to 10 years, as well as for expanded education and training opportunities. This book provides a timely resource on good practices and potential solutions for developing and sustaining high quality secondary education systems in Africa. It includes the main elements of a roadmap to improve Africa’s secondary education systems’ response to the demands of growing economies and rapidly changing societies.Education professionals, decision makers, and staff in international agencies will want to consider the policy options in this report for secondary education financing, curriculum and assessment, and service delivery. This book is also intended to facilitate policy dialogue within African countries as well as between those countries and their development partners.
