The affordability of education is a global problem that needs addressing. Subsidisation from the state and private sector is one way this problem can be addressed. One should not be denied education simply because they cannot afford it. The historical nature of oppression in Africa has led to a huge portion of the population living under the poverty line. To deny the youth education simply based off the lack of funding does not aid closing the inequality gap. Innovative ways of funding education need to be researched by all African states to come up with a solution that benefits all.
