EducationPreschool Education:

Over the long term, education is a major factor for social mobility and poverty reduction. Together with health, it is the greatest treasure of human capital.

The Caribbean coast has the lowest levels of access to preschool education in the country, as well as the highest dropout rate.

Preschool education still poses a challenge at the national level. The tendency for the indicator shows significant progress in terms of reducing the gap between the national average and the Caribbean coast. However, the two regions, RAAN and the RAAS in particular, are still below the national average.

Primary Education:

For every 100 students that entered first grade, approximately 40 finished primary school (sixth grade), as reported by the Ministry of Education.

At the regional level, the RAAS reported the lowest levels of coverage for primary school. In 2005 enrollment in primary schools had a 3% decrease compared to 2004. This setback is a cause of migration and the situation of poverty. Most of the children that drop out of primary school do so between the first and fourth grades.
