Côte d'Ivoire - Prime Minister Achi Patrick wants a national conference for better positioning of the country's education system.


Abidjan Jul 19, 2021 - Ivorian Prime Minister Achi Patrick wishes that the National Education Conference launched on Monday, July 19, 2021, in Abidjan will enable better positioning of the Ivorian school system for the first time since the first in three decades.

According to Mr Achi, the various political crises experienced since the early 1990s have affected the quality of education. Despite many initiatives towards the school system since 2011, the Ivorian school system is still in disarray.

The National Education and Literacy Conference is an important step to review the details of actions and results of the last decade.

In addition, faced with the perpetual changes in society, it becomes imperative that, from time to time, we take stock to measure the progress and the necessary adjustments towards improvement.

"We must courageously and with honesty question the system, assess the roles of all the stakeholders, in particular the State which offers the knowledge and also parents who are at the heart of education, each one having to take stock", He wished. Generally, it is a question of formulating recommendations for better positioning of the school system.

This National Conference is the fourth national consultation around education after 1977, 1985 and 1994.
