Basic education

Children start school the year they turn six. In principle, the public school is both free and compulsory. However, only 59% of children of compulsory school age began in primary school in 2011, and only 36% of the relevant school year was enrolled in secondary school. This has nevertheless been a marked improvement since the turn of the millennium.
