Schooling by gender, residence and wealth (Mozambique)
Universal primary schooling has advanced, disparity between the sexes have fallen, and in many countries the quality of education for children has improved significantly, but the global commitment for Education for Everyone, fostered by the United Nations, has not succeeded. Millions of girls, boys and adolescents from poorer and underprivileged sectors still do not attend school.
In Mozambique, between 2010 and 2014, the rate of attendance to primary school included in equal numbers 76% of girls and boys, which means an important progress over time. However, inequality remains in the net rate of attendance by residence and wealth. That is to say, the levels of inequality in primary schooling in Mozambique have disappeared in terms of gender, but 14% more boys than girls attend depending on their place of residence, and up to 31% according to family income.
