Administration, Finance, & Educational Research
The Ministry of National Education in Abidjan supervises the educational system of Côte d'Ivoire, while delegating administrative and curricular authority to three other cabinet-level ministries: the Ministry of Primary Education, the Ministry of Technical and Vocational Training, and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The Ministry of National Education is the only agency in Côte d'Ivoire that accredits schools and validates diplomas and degrees. It delegates authority to ministries in matters of specific curricular development, faculty evaluation, and school inspections. In 2000, the educational budget of Côte d'Ivoire represented 26 percent of national expenditures. The government has pledged to increase this figure to at least 30 percent of the national budget by fiscal 2003.
