New! latest education finance indicators
The latest finance indicators from UNESCO’s Institute of Statistics (UIS) give an insight on the funding of education during hard times. Since the beginning of the current economic downturn, in 2008, one-half of countries reporting data allocated more than 4.7% of their GDP to education.
Data show that many developing countries make basic education a priority. In sub-Saharan Africa all countries with available data allocated around 50% of their education spending to primary and lower secondary education.
