The standard of education in Sierra Leone before and immediately after independence was rated the best in West Africa. With the University of Sierra Leone (FBC) established in 1827, Sierra Leone was dubbed, “Athens of West Africa.” Long period of sustained neglect resulted in the erosion of quality in the education system. [<a href=”http://education.stateuniversity.com/pages/1334/Sierra-Leone-EDUCATIONAL-SYSTEM-OVERVIEW.html”>Sierra Leone – Educational System—overview</a>]. The government of Sierra Leone, with the support of donors has done great job in providing access to many more citizens. Today the country can boast of more graduates than ever before. Yet, the quality of education across institutions is still found wanting.
Presently, most students pay hefty sums for extra tuition outside formal academic settings. This approach is counter to GoSL effort to provide non-discriminatory access to education since poorer households could not afford to raise fund for these extra tuition.

Due to involvement of the Ministries of Education, Youth and Sports, and that of local businesses communities once more had faith in the education system and developed the perception that local businesses can be forces for common good.
