Example text

For middle-income SSA countries, the corresponding figures are 15 percent, 27 percent, and 200 percent; and for low-income countries outside SSA, they are 11 percent, 12 percent, and 53 percent. These comparisons are a first indication that the cost structure of postprimary education in SSA countries is likely to pose a serious impediment to its expansion and development. A closer look at the data on public spending per student reveals the following noteworthy features: • In primary education, the figure for SSA countries is comparable to the averages for the other country groups, generally falling in the range of 11 to 15 percent of per capita GDP.

The Quality and Reach of Educational Services and Related Unit Costs • 33 Another approach for choosing values for this variable is to relate it to salaries in primary education. 5 times the per capita GDP. 9 times the per capita GDP. 6, respectively. RECURRENT EXPENDITURE EXCLUDING THE SALARIES OF TEACHERS9 The choice of values for this variable in the simulation scenarios is based on the range observed across the 33 SSA countries. On average, expenditure on inputs other than teacher salaries accounts for about 38 percent of total recurrent spending in the lower secondary cycle and 40 percent in the upper secondary cycle.

In the “spartan” scenario, the shares are, respectively, 38 and 42 percent. REPETITION RATE This variable does not affect spending per student but does have budget implications in that the higher its value, the more students remain in the system and the greater the budget required to maintain operations. In recent years, repetition rates in SSA countries have been rising and currently average about 13 percent in both cycles of secondary schooling in the 33 SSA countries. The rates are around 5 percent in non-African countries and less than 9 percent in middle-income African countries.
