Abstract

Out-of-the-way From School ? Poverty, Accessibility and School Attendance in Conakry. - Sub-Saharan African countries have to ensure the schooling of a growing number of children, in a context of deepening poverty. Even though attendance rates are lower in rural areas, cities are facing serious problems. This paper analyses, for Conakry, the impact of location of school provision, measured by the density of public and private schools and trip duration to school, on primary school attendance. Findings confirm the major role of factors concerning the demand for education and they also emphasize that availability of public schools is determinant given that physical accessibility to private schools, which are more numerous, is hindered by monetary accessibility.
