Abstract:
This study provides an overview of the education system in Mekelle, Ethiopia, and assesses prospects for achieving education-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), specifically ensuring universal primary education (MDG 2) and gender parity in schools (MDG3), by 2015. Mekelle is on its way toward achieving universal primary education by 2015; however, improvements in educational quality are needed. Concerning MDG 3, gender parity has been achieved at the primary level, and Mekelle is on target to achieve this goal by 2015 at the secondary level. Yet promoting gender parity through public programs and campaigns, providing sufficient private toilet facilities for girls and increasing the number of female teachers are necessary.
