The prosperity of a country is manifested in the socio-economic
and cultural set up. Tunisia is the northernmost country in Africa. It is bordered
by Algeria to the west, Libya to the southeast, and the Mediterranean Sea to the
north and east. Tunisia’s north has a mountainous terrain and the south is desert.
The climate is Mediterranean in the north with mild rainy winters and hot, dry summers.
The current global understanding is to relook at education in
the lens of the post 2015 era. The Incheon meeting, South Korea in May 2015, brought
together countries to have a common front on the targets for the education 2030
agenda. One of the principles of the education 2030 agenda is that countries need
to review their policies and targets to ensure achievement of an all-inclusive access
to quality education. This country profile describes the status of the socio-cultural,
economic and demographic factors followed by the education system. It gives the
situation analysis of the education system at all levels and in particular provides
benchmark information in participation, equity and quality in education.
