Government wants literacy rate to increase to 78 percent in 2027

The literacy rate of people aged 15 or over is expected to increase from 76 to 78 percent by 2027, according to forecasts in the National Development Plan (PDN).


To achieve this objective, the Executive will hire more literacy teachers to teach young people and adults and recruit more volunteers in communities, the Government announces in a statement to which VerAngola had access.

At the moment, the illiteracy rate corresponds to 24 percent of the population over 15 years of age, and has a greater incidence among women and rural communities.

Other actions contained in the PDN in the Education sector are related to the adjustment of years of schooling to learning, and the large-scale reduction in the number of children outside the education system, in addition to reinforcing its quality.

The Executive wants the quality of the education system reinforced with a package of measures, including the requirement for higher education to exercise the role of teacher.

Furthermore, the aim is to reduce the teacher/student ratio, carry out a curricular transformation towards a greater focus on the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics and expand the training offer in higher education in these specialties.

By 2027, the Executive will also reinforce the implementation of the 'Reference Schools' project and the 'National System Quality Assurance System' in Higher Education.

Net enrollment rates in the initiation class will increase from 48 to 58 percent, in primary education from 64 to 70 percent, in the first cycle of secondary education from 23 to 27 percent, while the population between 15 and 18 years old will attending the second cycle of secondary education will increase from 25 to 29 percent.

The PDN also includes actions so that 82 percent of teachers have qualifications to teach in secondary education, exceeding the current 78 percent.

An increase in teachers from 67 to 72 percent is also expected, with technical-professional conditions for primary education, and more investments in general and higher education, taking into account the budget increase scheduled for the coming years.

The Executive's intention is also to invest in science and innovation, promoting employment and entrepreneurship, professional training and the expansion and modernization of the education system, the document adds.
