The Tunisian education system

Until 1956, date of the end of the French protectorate, Tunisia had a very high illiteracy rate and faced similarly high population growth. Since its accession to independence, the country has made education a priority, allocating to it about 7% of its annual GDP, with the result that Tunisia has ranked as one of the best-performing countries where investment in education and training are concerned. Moreover, Tunisia’s education system is a key factor in the country’s overall economic development.
