University of Benin, Lome, free education, pupils, primary schools

During the 1970s the Togolese government undertook a campaign to provide free education for all children between the ages of 2 and 15. In 1998 nearly all primary school-aged children attended school, but only 33 percent of secondary school-aged students were enrolled. In the 1998-1999 school year 953,900 pupils were enrolled in primary schools, and 231,900 students were enrolled in secondary schools. Missionary schools remain important in the country, educating about half the pupils. Approximately 15,000 students were enrolled in 1998-1999 at the University of Benin (1965), at Lome.
