example of use

Senegal has been strongly committed to basic education and has rapidly expanded access…. The country is now looking for a better balance between quantity and quality. Indicators of quality still seem to lag behind, however, with relatively high repetition rates in the higher grades, a low ranking in the PASEC survey and little progress according to the national assessment system (UNESCO, 2005: 52).
