Receiving an education can provide the foundation for people to have a productive life. However, the education system is very unequal when it is compared on an international level. In many parts of the World, children are unable to receive a great learning experience due to a number of factors, such as war and poverty. Using an international point of view, here is a look at the leading countries who have poor educational systems. Starting with the list of countries with the lowest standards of education below.

Burkina Faso

Pupils in Burkina Faso

The United Nations notes that many children only stay in school until the 6th or 7th grade. Burkina Faso has a high teacher to student ratio, and less than 50% of adults are literate. Thanks to the support of the government, Burkina Faso has started to address some of these issues.

Central African Republic

Pupils in CAR

The government has not committed a lot of resources to the educational system, which has lead to schools being closed, students lacking their basic materials such as books, and teachers not receiving their wages. Attendance rates are very low.

Sierra Leone

Pupils at Planting Promise’s school, Freetown, Sierra Leone. Planting Promise is an organization dedicated to the development of education in Sierra Leone. Its aim is to bring opportunities to initiate self-run, self-supporting projects that offer real solutions to the difficulties facing the world’s poorest country. They believe real and lasting development comes from below, from local projects that address specific needs, rather than large international models. To this end, they currently run five projects that aim to bring wealth into the country through business. The profits from these businesses are then used to support free education for children and adults.
Through the combination of business with social progress, the charity hopes that they are providing real, lasting and profound changes for the better, by promoting sustainable and beneficial industry in the country, and putting it to the service to the needs of the people. As well as providing the income to fund the school, the farms will also be an example of successful commercial enterprise to teach the children in the school the viability of profit-making schemes that go beyond subsistence models, the only things the children of these desperately poor areas are accustomed to. By learning particular details of the challenges that they will face, the children will emerge from this school equipped to contribute in a real way to their society.

While every child starts off in school, more than half of them eventually drop out before long. The average child in Sierra Leone spends just 3 years in school. Due to the high number of dropouts, Sierra Leone has a high illiteracy rate.

Burma

Burma

The conflict in Burma has resulted in an efficient system. The high poverty rate has made it difficult for children to even enroll in school. The budget cuts administered by the government have caused the enrollment costs that parents pay to rise substantially. Burma has restricted access to schooling to many ethnic minority groups in the country. Many children drop out before reaching the 5th grade

Mali
There is a high probability that a student in school is being trained by a teacher who isn’t even certified. Mali has taken steps in recent years to address its high student to teacher ratio. Primary school enrollment continues to rise as well.
