"This report presents a market and regulatory survey of the private K-12 and tertiary education sectors in the West African country of Ghana.
The primary method of gathering the information required to prepare this report was the use of case studies and interviews conducted during a field study of the Greater Accra region of Ghana.
The analysis presented in this report is necessarily impressionistic and high level.
There are differences in the measured size of the private school sector in Ghana. Official government data are available on the private school sector for the period 1986/87 to 1996/97. These data indicate that the private school sector, with 10.9 percent of enrolments, is small relative to the public sector.
Other more recent data sources provide higher estimates of the size of the private school sector in Ghana. The private school sector is growing strongly, especially at the primary education level. The private school market in Ghana is not uniform. The private tertiary education sector is younger than the private school sector and is less well documented. The private higher education sector is diverse, but has a number of elements in common. The private sector appears to be poised for significant growth. The regulatory framework for private schools is set out primarily in the Education Act 1961. The regulatory framework for private tertiary institutions is more structured than that for private schools.
There does not appear to be a coherent policy basis underlying the governmentâ€™s regulation of the private education sector. The role of the state and private sectors in education is best considered within a conceptual process that identifies the objectives of the government, identifies the range of tools or instruments available and assesses how well they achieve those objectives. There are many ways that the private sector can contribute to achieving the governmentâ€™s objectives in education. The regulatory framework for education should be designed to deliver the maximum gains from the resources dedicated to education in Ghana. The strategy for reforming the regulatory framework for private schools in Ghana is built around a number of general principles or objectives. A number of specific reforms are proposed. The proposed reforms to the regulatory framework for private tertiary education in Ghana have a number of broad aims. A number of specific reforms are proposed for reforming the regulatory framework at the tertiary education level. There is scope for greater domestic and external promotion of investment opportunities in the private education sector in Ghana.
