Abstract

We reviewed the historical background of Universal Basic Education (UBE), with a focus on its economics and requirements for the successful execution of the scheme. The economic rationalization of the scheme was examined on the basis of a number of issues such as the Universality of UBE, education, fear of eventual under funding etc. Recommendations were made for the sustainability of the scheme.
