1. The number of students increased, except in primary education where there was a slight decline in the numbers with a shift in the 2002-03 school year. The government needs to pay attention to this.

In basic and secondary education, the increase is due to the government’s efforts to improve service provision at these two levels in an attempt to improve the Sãotomean education system by making it possible to extend basic and secondary education coverage to the underprivileged. This action confirms the government’s determination to expand basic education to the sixth grade in an attempt to respond to the past and present challenge.
