Transforming education in Comoros

Comoros prioritizes education and is committed to working with partners to address persistent sector challenges. Disparities in access to education, insufficient infrastructure, teachers and learning materials, and a weak education information and management system contribute to poor learning outcomes.

In 2017, more than 3 out of 4 students in grade 5 did not meet minimum proficiency levels in literacy and mathematics. Comoros is working with GPE and other partners to improve teaching and learning to guarantee Comorian children a quality, equitable, inclusive and resilient basic education.

Comoros’ priority reform efforts include strengthening the capacities and skills of teachers and school leaders, ensuring that all children participate in at least one year of pre-primary education, and establishing a system to evaluate the quality of learning.

Additionally, curriculum reform will take into account priority themes, including environmental education and the promotion of gender equality and inclusive education in Comoros.
