Madagascar: World Bank revealed in a report the deteriorated situation of Malagasy school education since the 2009 political crisis

The World Bank presented on Tuesday in Anosy its report on the situation of the education system of Magascar while the country was shaken in 2009 by an unprecedented political crisis.

The World Bank notes in its detailed analysis the deteriorating situation of the educational institution in the Big Island, along with about 400,000 and 600,000 children who are out of school since 2009.

And there are more than 255,000 ex-students who also have left the way to school after the CM2 class and are now without a degree in a country shaken to its foundations by the political crisis that had affected the economy and the social sector in Madagascar.

The Central administration, which oversees education in the big island, is not spared by the report of the World Bank.

"The number of teachers declined rapidly in recent years, reaching 33% in 2010 and 2011", said the report of the World Bank, as shown in the newspaper L'Express of Madagascar.
Since 2008, public spending on education declined by nearly 176 billion Ariary, a decrease of 15% per student.
In order to stop this downward spiral of public spending, the World Bank wants the implementation of free basic costs of primary education for all students.

An additional targeted funding for disadvantaged areas and the repeal of contributions for teaching under the auspices of the Fram association with parents forced to recruit teachers to take charge of their children education are also available.

As a reminder, teachers from the Fram Association represent more than 70% of teachers in Madagascar, having received no training before becoming a teacher and with the degree of BEPC.
