Kazakhstan recognises a right to quality education to all its citizens,1 and its government has engaged important efforts since the end of the 1990s to make this right effective, notably by extending the coverage of schooling throughout the country. According to the National Centre for Educational Statistics and Evaluation, primary and secondary education integrated 99.3% of children from 7 to 10 years old and 99.8% of children from 11 to 15 years old in 2005. The country also recorded significant results in international education studies, ranking first among 129 countries on the UNESCO Index of Education for all Development Index (IDE) in 2009 and seventh on in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMMS) in 2007.
