What Works in Girls’ Education in Ghana
A critical review of the Ghanaian and international literature
Prepared by Camfed Ghana
For the Ministry of Education and the Girls’ Education Unit,
Ghana Education Service
With support from DFID, Ghana
The review’s audience is the Government of Ghana - especially the Girls’ Education Unit(GEU) – and its development partners, including the Department for International Development (DFID), which funded this study. At a time when there is a renewed focus on value-for-money (VfM), results and impact, the report aims to inform evidence-based policy making for all education stakeholders in Ghana. By providing a lens on ‘beyond access’ issues, the review directly feeds into wider Millennium Development Goals and Education For All (EFA) targets, and the Government of Ghana’s most recent Education Strategic Plan (ESP), with its focus on learning outcomes, quality and equity in education.
