MEHE is responsible for overseeing the overall education sector, from the approval of national policies to the provision of service delivery in public schools, as well as regulation of private schools and other education service providers. CERD, an autonomous agency under the custodial authority of MEHE, is responsible for strategic planning nationwide, at the pre-university level.The RACE 2 program aims to achieve three outcomes and nine outputs that are structured around three pillars: i) Equitable Access, ii) Enhanced Quality, and iii) Strengthened Systems.
