Rationale for the Event
USAID Ghana have undergone an assessment on Low Cost Private Schools across 17 districts in the North of Ghana as part of their “Feed the Future and Resiliency in Northern Ghana II (FtF/RING II) program. The project had the following research questions;
1. What are the supply and demand trends for LCPSs in northern Ghana, with a focus on the 17 FtF and RING II districts?
2. How eﬀective are the LCPSs in the FtF/RING II districts in terms of management, leadership, business model and sustainability, infrastructure, and learning achievement?
3. What cost-eﬀective assistance could help LCPSs in the FtF/RING II districts improve their business models and signiﬁcantly expand enrolment of marginalized school-age children from the communities they serve?
The purpose of this event was to share the ﬁndings of the USAID report as well as solicit inputs from the invited stakeholders to improve the environment for Low-Cost Private Schools in Ghana and ultimately improve the overall the educational outcomes in the selected districts.
