Based on observation by the TLCE of the education sector during the past five years, it has noticed the education sector has progressed significantly in terms of the student enrolment, number of teachers, and with new schools being built across the country.

The Program Manager of Timor-Leste coalition for education (TLCE), Matias dos Santos said there are 391.611 public schools in Timor-Leste including junior and senior high schools, primary schools and universities, with a
total teacher population of 13.945 teachers.
He said TLCE appreciated with the scholarships program provided to the Timorese people to study overseas in a range of different disciplines.
TLCE's observation is that education development was well implemented, “despite some shortcoming including infrastructure with many schools lacking the necessary conditions”, said Santos in his office, in Kaikoli, Dili.
“We hope the new government will keep their [political] promises and respond to the needs of schools,” he hoped.
He also urged the new government to continue efforts made by the former government and completed unfinished projects that ensure the good quality of education that is so important for the future of Timor-Leste.
Student Nivio Baptista urged the leaders to pay attention more to schools, and create created adequate infrastructure so they can respond adequately to the learning needs of students in Timor-Leste.
“Our [students] deserve schools with good facilities including toilets and clean water.
