Rwanda - education

Rwanda Education, The first educational reforms after independence in 1962 aimed to break the Tutsis' priority by giving everyone access to education. The next one from 1977 meant another step towards democratizing the education system and placing greater emphasis on agriculture and the economy. However, the six-year elementary school and the three-year superstructure, established in 1991, are followed by only a few. The country's only university was founded in 1963.
