The role of governance in quality education in sub-Saharan Africa

Simplice Asongu () and Nicholas Odhiambo ()

No 20/077, Research Africa Network Working Papers from Research Africa Network (RAN)

Abstract: This paper examines the governance-“education quality†nexus in a panel of 49 sub-Saharan African countries over the period 2000-2012. Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) and Quantile regression (QR) are employed as estimation strategies. The following findings are established. First, from the OLS, governance variables are negatively correlated with poor education quality. Second, with regards to QR, about half of the governance dynamics are not significantly correlated with poor education quality in the lowest quantile of poor education quality. With the exception of corruption-control, the other governance dynamics are negatively correlated with poor education quality in a non-monotonic pattern.
