Population, Education

Butare, technical schools, Schooling, compulsory, National University

Schooling is free, and in principle, compulsory for children aged 7 through 13, but only 84.1 percent of the adult population is literate. In 1998 an estimated 114 percent of primary school-aged children were enrolled in school, but only 9 percent of the relevantly aged children attended secondary or technical schools. The National University in Butare, opened in 1963, had about 2,500 students in the early 1990s. However, after the violence began in April 1994, education at all levels ceased and has yet to be fully restored.
