FINANCE ADMINISTRATION & EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH
The Ministry of Education, based in Nouakchott, oversees the educational policies and procedures of Mauritania. In 1993 roughly 7 percent of the national budget was allocated to education. In both 1994 and 1995, this was reduced to 4 percent, forcing the schools to stretch their limited dollars even further. Education officials spent most of the 1990s working on developing a data processing system for the nation's educational system.
