Primary Education; Access & Equity in Basic Education; Teaching and Learning; Education For All; Gender and Education
Summary: Inequity in learning achievements is the central challenge facing national development and the development of basic education in Ghana. Within basic education, existing inequities in service delivery disadvantage marginalized groups, depress overall system performance (for example, average learning outcomes) and weaken efforts to meet quality, efficiency, and accountability goals. Inequitable service delivery undermines public trust in government and supports the reproduction of existing social and economic inequalities. The effects of this inequity are realized beyond basic education in compromising progress toward post-basic education goals (for example, skills development and tertiary preparation) and broader national goals of increasing economic competitiveness, nurturing democratic development and strengthening social cohesion. Improving equity in basic education is the central theme of this report. However, issues of equity are strongly related to quality, efficiency, and accountability. Further, since service delivery is organized through community and national institutions, this report provides discussion on education management, finance and expenditure and the politics of education reform.
