Africa is in the midst of an education crisis. Despite pledges to improve access to education for all children by 2030, many African governments are failing to fund this ambitious component of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.This challenge is most acute in Africa; although 75 percent of girls in Sub-Saharan Africa start school, only 8 percent complete secondary education.Less understood is the contradictory impact that Africa's future growth will have on the availability of education funding.Traditional forms of international aid will continue to play a role in the development of Africa's education sector.Called the International Finance Facility for Education, this innovative approach aims to help lower-middle-income countries invest in education – especially programs for women and girls – in more sustainable ways.With just 12 years to go before the expiration of the SDGs, Africa's education crisis must be moved to the top of the development agenda.
