Education Sector Performance Report 2018
1. INTRODUCTION In this 2018 Education Sector Performance Report (ESPR), we provide an analysis of sector performance over 2016/17 and 2017/18 academic years. Besides, this report gives record of sector programmes under implementation over the period and or prior to this with at least three to fiveyear performance trend where appropriate and gives attention to discussions on lessons and good practices from within the sector, the sub region as well as the global perspective on education. This report emphasizes the ongoing changes in the education sector, which aim to transform the landscape into being more accountable and efficient in achieving results. The ESPR provide readers and all stakeholders, including the general public, an account of sector’s overall performance. The following documents and reports have informed the 2018 ESPR:
• The 2017/18 Annual School Census Education Management Information System (EMIS); • 2017 Annual reports of Agencies of the MoE; • 2018 Quarterly reports (Q1 and Q2) from Agencies of the Ministry; • Implementation status reports of selected projects such as SEIP, CBE etc.; • MoE Annual Financial reports of 2017; • 2017 WAEC examination results on BECE and WASSCE; • Monitoring reports from Ministry Agencies including GES, NFED, CENDLOS, COTVET; • Financial reporting for 2017 from Government and Donors; and • The Education Strategic Plan (ESP) 2018-2030.
1.2 The Education Strategic Plan (ESP)
The draft ESP was completed and appraised in June 2018. The ESP 2018-2030 was developed alongside the Education Sector Medium-Term Development Plan (ESMTDP) 2018–2021 and the Education Sector Analysis (ESA) 2018. All three documents were developed under the leadership of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and supported by the agencies of the MOE. The documents benefited from the contributions of numerous individuals and teams who supported with analysis and drafting, as well as providing oversight and strategic direction. Development partner and other stakeholders also shared qualitative and quantitative data and literature to inform the process and gave significant amounts of time to contribute to and guide the process.
The Education Sector Analysis covers a national analysis of financing and management of the sector, and disaggregated analysis of each level of the education system by access, quality and management and financing separate.
The Education Strategic Plan 2018-2030 (ESP) is organized around seven programme areas that aligns with the various levels of education alongside cross cutting issues on inclusive and management of education services. Each of the seven programme areas (listed below) is aligned to a strategic objective that give direction to the planned interventions with measurable indicative targets. The seven programme areas are:
• Basic Education, • Senior Secondary Education, • Technical Vocational Education • Inclusive and Special Education,

The ESP sets out three broad policy objectives which are inspired by national (National Medium-Term Development Framework), continental (Agenda 2063/continental Education Strategy for Africa) and global (the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030) objectives on education as presented in figure 1 below:
