Background: Members of the Chad Government attended the celebrations staged at Fort Lamy recently to mark Education Week. The Chad Minister of Education and Culture spoke of his country's development in the fields of education in recent years. He said parents had seen the potential that schooling offered their children in future years, and that they had readily accepted the opportunity that free schooling gave them.
The Education Week in Chad was celebrated to mark the international Year of Education. Parades, bands, marches and festivities in schools throughout the country gave the event a special appeal for the children.
