While there education improvements made towards the attainment of universal primary education among African countries, there is a great deal of work to be done to improve the quality of higher Education. This was observed yesterday during the opening of a two-day conference dubbed “Mobilising African Intellectuals towards Quality Tertiary Education”, which is taking place at the Kigali Convention Centre (KCC).
President Paul Kagame said on Wednesday that Africa still grapples with low numbers of graduates in tertiary education and research, and calls for heavy investment into the sector. Africa’s experts in different fields have converged in Rwanda’s capital Kigali to seek concrete solutions and strategies to improve tertiary education and research, under the Sustainable Development Goal Center for Africa (SDGC/A). The conference is organised under the theme – ‘Mobilizing African Intellectuals towards Quality Tertiary Education.’
