Dear All From my experience in developing countries, as well as short visits to Uganda, basic education is still play an important role in welfare of both individual and nation as a whole. However, from the experience of East Asian countries as far as my reading goes, the investment on education can have a positive impact on economic development, only when the system is designed to produce human capital needed for the labour market to function well. Therefore, education policy makers have to be aware of both the current labour market and the vision of the future where our countries want to go and link education policy towards producing human capital needed for the future labour labour. Therefore, avoiding to pre-judge what level and type of education should be prioritized.
