Household Education Spending - Methological Guidelines
Given the lack of statistics on expenses incurred by households on their children’s education, review of education financing is often limited to that of public expenditure, making it difficult to have objective discussions on private education financing.
The Pôle de Dakar, as part of its statistical and analytical production activities, has developed a method for assessing household education spending, per child and per level of education, based on household surveys. This method proves particulary useful when education expenditure for households is not disaggregated for each enrolled child. Thus, the main goal of this note is to document this methodological and technical approach.

Sierra Leone: Country Status Report
This report provides a detailed analysis of the status and trends of the Sierra Leone education system, based on the latest available data. Its main purpose is to enable decision makers to orient national education policies on the basis of a factual diagnosis of the overall education sector and to provide relevant analytical information for the dialogue between the government, development partners and civil society.
The Sierra Leone report offers not only traditional and basic schooling indicators, but also analyzes the performance of the education system in terms of access, internal efficiency, learning outcomes, external efficiency, equity, teacher management and the allocation and utilization of financial resources.
