The situation is strikingly similar in Ghana - which is often held up as a beacon of hope across the continent. While access has indeed increased since school fees were abolished in 2005, the quality of education remains incredibly poor. In the National Education Assessment (2011), only 16% of grade 6 students scored 'proficient' (>55%) on the maths test and just a 1/3rd of students scored 'proficient' on the English test. The education system needs to serve the students - the future of Ghana.
