Transparency International (TI) will next week release 'Africa Education Watch: Good

Governance Lessons for Primary Education', a new report on education in seven African

countries.
Despite ten years of international efforts to provide universal basic education, the report

shows that poor management and lack of training is compromising the delivery of quality

basic education.
TI, a global agency known for its fight against corruption, said the report highlights a

broad range of problems, from deficient or non-existent of accounting systems to illegal

fees.
Countries covered in the reports are: Ghana, Madagascar, Morocco, Niger, Senegal,

Sierra Leone and Uganda.
The report analyses data from more than 7,600 questionnaires completed by parents,

head teachers, heads of Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) and district education

officers.
