Why We Collect Data on Education
Universal access and quality basic education are development goals expressed within the framework of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Although there is a strong commitment on policies such as capitation grants, textbook provision, school-feeding programs, among others meant to provide and improve universal access and quality basic education in Ghana, ensuring high basic education outcomes remains a challenge.
In addition, resource disbursement, and efficiency in resource allocation and effective program implementation leading to improved outcomes in public basic education service provision are fraught with institutional challenges. Access to high quality education services and improved learning outcomes remain out of reach of the poor and vulnerable in Ghana.
In spite of a long history of policy commitment to ensuring access and improved outcomes in education services delivery, providing broad base high quality public basic education remains one of the challenges in the education sector public service delivery.
