This map tells us whether countries make secondary education accessible to their citizens by providing tuition-free education in the first year of secondary education.
- Tuition reported means that the country reports charging tuition in the first year of secondary education. A country’s constitution may state that education is tuition-free, but if the country reports that tuition is charged, it appears as tuition reported.
- Tuition-free includes cases where no tuition is charged in the first year of secondary education, but there may be other fees. These additional fees cannot be compared across countries as there is not enough information available.
