Equatorial Guinea Study and Training


The school system is relatively well developed according to African conditions. Approximately 92% of children (99% of boys and 84% of girls) begin compulsory five-year primary school. However, the quality of teaching is poor, the teachers' level of education is low and there is a lack of teaching material. School fees mean that many cannot afford to keep children in school. Dropouts are common. About a quarter of the children begin the seven-year education that follows primary school. In the capital Malabo there is a university that cooperates with Spanish institutions. Hundreds of students study abroad. Illiteracy is relatively low in Equatorial Guinea compared to other sub-Saharan countries; about 86% (93% of men and 78% of women) can read and write.
