Educated children are more likely to fulfil their potential, become productive adults and engaged citizens who contribute to society.
Albania maintains high access to primary and basic education with a Net Enrolment Rate of 96 per cent. However, many children such as Roma children or children with disabilities do not enjoy the right to education. Albania’s under-resourced education system is struggling to improve equity and quality with the goal of preparing students with 21st century skills, and to meet Sustainable Development Goals (SDG-4) and national education goals. Expenditure on education has remained at 3 per cent of GDP during the last years, while the average in the OECD countries is at around 5 per cent.
