Education

South Sudan

South Sudan is believed to have the worst literacy rate in the world, behind even Mali and Niger. A July 2012 report by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) found that less than 2 percent of the population has completed primary school education.

Adult Literacy : 27 percent (2009)

Primary School Enrollment

  • 2006 : 700,000
  • 2010 : 1.6 million

Government Education Spending

South Sudan allocates 16 percent of the national budget to education. However opposition political parties and aid agencies claim the real figure is less than 10 percent.
