Since the adoption of the Education for All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals, there has been significant progress towards universal primary education (UPE) during the past decade, especially in developing countries. Despite the encouraging progress, the impact of the considerable education progress recorded on development in Cameroon has been less than expected in terms of economic growth, the promotion of equality, and reduction of poverty. How much of this outcome is the consequence of particular characteristics of the country’s education system and how much is due to weak linkages between education and labor markets is difficult to discern.
