adopted educational government

The constitution of Côte d'Ivoire, originally adopted in 1960 and modified between 1971 and 1985, was abrogated in 1999. The new constitution, adopted by a vast majority of voters in a referendum in July of 2000, stipulates that education is free and compulsory for all between the ages of 7 and 13. Prior to that, in 1995, the government adopted the Loi de Réforme No. 696. This document spelled out the fundamental principles behind the government's educational policies and outlined strategic planning and curricular developments for all educational levels.
