Abstract: Many developing countries have made significant progress in increasing primary school enrolments. Though, evidence on what they learn in school has been unsatisfactory. Estimates from regional student assessments across the world reveal that millions of school going children have failed to acquire even the most basic literacy and numeracy skills.
