    1. Lebanon AME Education Sector Profile

    2. Lebanon Education System Structure and Enrollments 2007 Education Structure Source: UNESCO Institute for Statistics. World Bank EdStats

    3. Lebanon Education Structure • Compulsory education in Lebanon is from grades 1-9. Source: UNESCO Institute for Statistics,

    4. Lebanon • 53% of the population is under the age of 30 but that age group is not projected to grow much larger in the nearer term. • Good educational opportunities for these young people are necessary to support national economic growth. Population Structure Source: International Labor Organization

    5. Lebanon Education Policy Relevant Policies: • Social Action Plan Toward Strengthening Social Safety Nets and Access To Basic Social Services, 2007. http://www.economy.gov.lb/MOET/English/Navigation/News/SocialActionPlan2007.htm • Development Plan for Education in Lebanon, 2008. [in French] http://planipolis.iiep.unesco.org/format_liste1_en.php?Chp2=Lebanon

    6. Lebanon Education Access: Pre-university • Secondary enrollments have increased at a marginally greater rate since 1990 at an average of 7.2% than primary education at 5.4%. • Enrollments are quite high indicating the strength of the system to draw children to school. Source: UNESCO Institute for Statistics, World Bank EdStats

    7. Lebanon • Despite rising university enrollments (18% since 2000), distribution of students among levels of study has remained remarkably stable. • Higher education produces few graduate degrees, perhaps an indication of difficulties of students to matriculate through the system. Education Access: Tertiary Source: UNESCO Institute for Statistics

    8. Lebanon • Girls are more successful at accessing secondary education with an enrollment rate 7% higher than boys’ rate. • Gender parity (0.97) has nearly been achieved at the primary level with almost equal boys’ and girls’ enrollments. Education Access: Gender Source: World Bank EdStats

    9. Lebanon EducationQuality: Teachers • Lebanon has approximately 88,000 teachers in general education. • 11-13% of all teachers, grades1-12, are trained but no further information can be found on the process or requirements of professional development. • The average teacher to pupil ratio for grades 1-12 is 11:1 which seems sufficient to cover all classes but may be low in efficiency terms. • Information on teacher recruitment, deployment, qualification standards and training in the public and private sector is limited. Source: UNESCO Institute for Statistics

    10. Lebanon • Completion rates declined 13% from 1999-2005 but have since seen a slight rise. • Girls are consistently more successful at completing primary school. Education Quality: Completion Source: World Development Indicators (WDI)

    11. Lebanon • Lebanon students achieved the highest mean math score (449) of MENA participant countries on the 2007 test but continue to rank at the low-intermediate level internationally (31 out of 45). • 2007 mean TIMSS scores improved an average of 18 points from 2003 scores. Education Quality: Testing Source: Trends in International Math and Science Study 2007

    12. Lebanon • Expenditure on pre-university private education amounts to 6% of the GDP. • Approximately 60% of all Lebanese children attend private school. Education Equity: Academic Disparities Source: Lebanon Ministry of Education

    13. Lebanon • Lebanon is the lowest spender on education in the region but together with the large expenditures of the private sector, education is well-supported in the country. Education Efficiency: Expenditure Source: World Bank EdStats, World Bank 2008, Yemen Ministry of Higher Education

    14. Lebanon • As a result of focused spending on pre-university levels , enrollments have consistently increased. Now the government needs to focus on improving quality of education in the classroom. Education Efficiency: Expenditure Source: World Bank EdStats

    15. Lebanon • Repetition rates at both levels are quite high and have not declined significantly over the years. Education Efficiency: Repetition Source: World Development Indicators (WDI)

    16. Lebanon Education Efficiency: Repetition • Using repetition as an indicator of quality, private schools provide a better education than public schools do. • Private schools have minimal percentages of two or more year repeaters while public schools have 4-11% more across all levels. Source: Lebanon Ministry of Education

    17. Lebanon • Lebanon is the poorest performing country in the region as far as public expenditure on education and addressing the repetition issue. Education Efficiency: Repetition
