According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Mali is a landlocked nation in West Africa. It has an area of 1,240,192 square kilometers and is bordered by seven countries: Algeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Senegal and Mauritania. The terrain of Mali is mostly flat with some hills in the north and east. The country has two main rivers; the Niger River which flows through the south of the country and the Senegal River which forms part of its western border. The climate in Mali is predominantly tropical with a dry season from November to February and a wet season from May to October. The educational system in Mali consists of five levels; pre-primary education, primary school education, secondary school education, higher education and vocational training. Pre-primary education is available for children aged 4-5 years old and is not compulsory. Primary school lasts for six years from age 6-11 providing basic literacy and numeracy skills as well as life skills such as problem solving and communication. Secondary school lasts for three years from age 12-14 where pupils specialize in their chosen subjects such as science or business studies. Higher education institutions offer undergraduate degrees as well as masters and doctoral programs in specific fields such as engineering or medicine. Additionally there are also technical schools providing vocational training for those wishing to pursue more practical career paths such as mechanics or nursing. Despite significant progress over recent decades, there are still some challenges facing the educational system in Mali with regards to access to schooling especially among girls living in rural areas where poverty levels remain high. According to UNICEF data from 2018 around 75% of children are currently enrolled at primary school level however this drops significantly among secondary school-aged children with only around 25% attending secondary school due to financial constraints faced by many families living in rural areas.
