Un modèle d’équilibre général calculable multisectoriel est construit afin d’évaluer les répercussions directes et indirectes des politiques publiques en matière d’éducation sur le bien-être, la pauvreté et la distribution des revenus au Burkina Faso. Il spécifie une dotation en main-d’œuvre qualifiée et non qualifiée flexible pour chaque ménage. Le système d’éducation est scindé en deux : L’éducation de base et l’éducation supérieure. Le volume d’éducation supérieure est exogène alors que l’éducation de base est demandée par les ménages à des fins d’investissement et permet de « transformer » les travailleurs non qualifiés en travailleurs qualifiés. Les simulations indiquent qu’une augmentation uniforme de 40 % des subventions publiques en éducation de base, financée par une augmentation de l’impôt sur le revenu des ménages et de la taxe de vente, se traduirait non seulement par une augmentation du bien-être mais par une baisse de l’incidence de la pauvreté pour tous les ménages.
