Ghana Education

Universal access to basic education has been a key goal for Ghana, and the country has continued on its path towards full enrolment. At the same time, Ghana has focused on improving and expanding its existing school infrastructure, particularly at the senior high school level through its Secondary Education Improvement Programme, launched in May 2014 and aimed at increasing access to senior secondary education in underserved communities. Educational enrolment levels have continued to improve, in part due to the success of government efforts, and the country has moved closer to achieving the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education by 2015. Regardless, performance rates have left many in Ghana concerned about the readiness of graduates entering the university system.
