In Ghana, some children do not attend school, because their parents are unable to afford levies and fees charged by schools. This led to the introduction of the Capitation Grant Scheme in 2005. This study investigates the influence of the Capitation Grant Scheme on education delivery in basic schools in Ghana, through a close study of the Ga West Municipality. It is a descriptive survey, involving teachers, head teachers and parents as the target population.
Abstract The need for education as a veritable tool for national development cannot be over-emphasized. However, the bane for educational development, both at the national and institutional level, is poor policy implementation. Using evidence and insight from published data, this paper examined Ghana’s Free Senior High School Policy and its attendant double track system.
