Comoros Education


Comorian children start school at the age of six. The compulsory school covers six years. Secondary school starts at the age of 12 and is seven years old, of which the last three years are voluntary. Officially, there is compulsory schooling, but in practice, just over half of the children attend primary school. However, many of the children also attend a few years in the Qur'an school, which teaches Islam, Arabic and some non-religious subjects. About 3.8% of GDP goes to education. In 2006, about three-quarters (80% of men and 69% of women) of the population were literate.
