Compulsory Education Act, University of Liberia, free education, Monrovia, literate

The Compulsory Education Act of 1912 provides for compulsory, free education for children between the ages of 6 and 16. However, government attempts to implement this law are hindered by a scarcity of educational facilities, and only 83 percent of primary school-aged children were receiving education in 1998. Just 71 percent of the population was literate in 2001. Higher education is provided by the University of Liberia (1862), in Monrovia, and several colleges.
