Abstract: 
This paper discusses the key issues and concerns in the Cambodian government's efforts to achieve three priority education policies for 2006-2010: ensure equitable access to education; increase quality and efficiency of the education services; and promote institutional development and capacity building for decentralisation. This paper points out the prevailing problems of low enrolment, high dropout and high repetition rates of students in public schools. The paper further identifies some concerns which may hinder the government from achieving the priority policies: the high opportunity cost of schooling; the heavy education costs due to teachers charging informal fees from students; and the localised socio-cultural
setting where transparency, accountability and meritocracy are difficult to achieve.
