The correlation between ICT-supported education system and economic development of a developing country has been documented by several studies (Anderson, 2009; Selwood et al, 2003; and Unwin, 2009).

This paper investigates how ICT-supported education reforms can have the effect of increasing the efficiency of the economy of DRC. It also highlights some of the challenges that need to be addressed to implement a comprehensive ICT reform plan. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
