Spotlight on basic education completion and foundational learning: Senegal

The purpose of this report is to review progress and challenges related to basic education in Senegal. The report provides a solid argument for the application of measures that are likely to accelerate the achievement of targets 4.1 and 4.5 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a framework to which Senegal has committed. Using evidence on the education system, the report is also an advocacy tool for public decision makers, national and local actors, and technical and financial partners.

The report is part of the Spotlight series, which seeks to highlight education progress in terms of access to, and quality of, basic and middle school education in African countries. Progress is measured across two main indicators: the completion rate and the percentage of children reaching the minimum proficiency threshold in reading and mathematics.
