Summary

This publication examines secondary education in Sub-Saharan Africa, focusing on the teaching of science, mathematics and ICT (SMICT), based on a literature review and ten country case studies (from Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe). It reveals a number of huge challenges in SMICT education in the region, including poorly-resourced schools, large classes, a curriculum hardly relevant to the daily lives of students, a lack of qualified teachers and inadequate teacher education programmes.
