The paper is recommended to all those, practitioners, development workers and researchers, committed to achieve poverty reduction, food security and universal primary education. The paper was presented at a joint UNICEF-World Bank Conference organized in June 2003 Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. It is a contribution to the achievement of the universal primary education and especially to the efforts to improve the rate of primary education of rural dwellers and girls in particular. Here lies the priority for action for all those committed in achieving MDGs One and Two. Besides it explores the issues of disparity focusing on gender, geographical location (urban/rural and family income) and on the characteristics of the populations that will need to be included . The study, based on quantitative and qualitative analysis, indicates that disparities in primary schooling between urban and rural areas (in favor of urban dwellers) are on average two to three times greater than those existing between boys and girls (in favor of boys).
