The government controls the educational system and offers free education from primary schools through university levels and in certain professional and technical fields. The District has a relatively well-developed system of primary and secondary education with high rates of student enrollment in most parts of the country and all over the world. More than 95 percent of the population is literate. Tertiary education (including universities), however, caters to only the small proportion that completed secondary education. Formal higher education in the District has a strong academic bias, making the large majority of university graduates suitable for only a limited number of white-collar jobs; this has caused widespread frustration, especially among the educated unemployed youth.
