This paper examines the relation between education, and notably post-primary education, and development. A survey of the economic literature presents the main approaches that have been used to justify the orientation given to the educational public policies followed by developing countries, and particularly by low income countries. The paper discusses the reasons why these policies have given priority to primary education to the detriment of other levels of education. The second part of the paper is devoted to an empirical examination of the influence of education on human development in Ethiopia. The analysis, based on DHS data, shows the importance of post-primary education to enhance human development in Ethiopia
