    Abstract

    Officially, the Central Asian states continue to have the same literacy rates as under the Soviet regime, which is about 99% of the population. The reality of the situation is altogether different. Figures provided by UNICEF reveal a significant drop in enrollment in primary schools in over little more than a decade. It will weigh heavily on the future of Central Asia in a world in which the mastery of knowledge is one of the drivers of economic development.
