Initiating and Conducting an Experimental Peer Review Exercise in Education in Africa - Mauritius: 2000-2005 Educational reform

Mauritius is one of the top African countries in term of educational achievement. Despite these commendable results, the country still struggles with a high rate of failure of children from poor families as well as unequal distribution of opportunities.

the end of the process, national and international peers were assembled by ADEA and the concerned country to conduct a review aiming at measuring the extent to which the policies were appropriate and their implementation conducive to addressing the identified challenges. The areas of Access and Relevance were particularly scrutinized.

This exercise led to useful recommendations that are presented in the present report.
