    Preface This report gives highlights on education and training in Botswana for the year 2015.

    The publication provides statistics users with comprehensive education statistics and information on the number of education institutions, enrolments, performance, teachers and facilities at primary education level. The statistics is of good quality, policy-relevant, and reliable to serve the purpose of monitoring the existing education policies including the 1994 Revised National Policy on Education (RNPE). This report also provides statistics for evidence on the country’s progress towards meeting national and international obligations. The information provided by this report also serves to monitor education related policies and compacts including the ten year basic education for all with emphasis on inclusive education and improved equity, increasing access in secondary and higher education, National Development Plans (NDP), Vision 2016, Education For All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to mention among a few. The information will also be used as a basis for assessing equitable allocation of resources in the various districts, regions and other denominations.

    We sincerely thank all those who provided information for their significant contribution towards production of this report. It would not have been possible to produce this report without the contribution from all Heads of Institutions through availing the data required.

    For more information and further enquiries, contact the Directorate of Stakeholder Relations at 3671300. All Statistics Botswana outputs/publications are available on the website at www.statsbots.org.bw, Statistics Botswana Library (Head-Office, Gaborone) and at the Ministry of Education and its strategic centres.
