Education in Ivory Coast

Education in Ivory Coast continues to face many challenges. The literacy rate for adults remains low: in 2000, it was estimated that only 48.7% of the total population was literate (60.8% of males and 38.6% of females). Many children between 6 and 10 years are not enrolled in school, mainly children of poor families. The majority of students in secondary education are male.At the end of secondary education, students can sit the Baccalauréat examination. The country has universities in Abidjan (Université de Cocody) Bouaké, (Université de Bouaké) and in Yamoussoukro (Institut national polytechnique Félix Houphouët-Boigny).
