Education: has expanded considerably since 1952, when only 4% of the adult population was literate. Since then, many schools have been opened, and several teacher-training schools have graduated numerous teachers. A major program to increase literacy was started in 1979; by the mid-1980s about 63% of the adult population could read and write. Free education exists from primary school through the college level, but regular school facilities are available only to about one-third of the children of school age. In the mid-1980s about 3.1 million students attended about 9100 primary and secondary schools run by the government and religious groups. Addis Ababa University (1950) has branches in Awassa, Bahir Dar, Debra Zeit, and Gondar. Other institutions of higher education include the University of Asmara (1958) and Alemaya University of Agriculture (1962). More than 20,000 students were enrolled in colleges and universities in the late 1980s.
