|Title: ||Importance of Female Education|
|Authors: ||Asamoah-Hassan, Helena R.|
|Issue Date: ||27-Jun-1996|
|Abstract: ||This is an issue we often hear about at various fora. We will keep talking about it because we have not yet got the desired result.
At a recent study, 1992, Ghana was ranked among the POOR list in a Female Education Index with the following figures
No. of female students per 100 males in Primary
Schools = 81
No. of female students per 100 males in Secondary
Schools = 64
Female gross enrolment rate in Primary Schools 67
Female gross enrolment rate in Secondary Schools 31
The female literacy rate in Ghana was 52.3%.
This further supports other research findings that a lot of girls are enrolled for primary education and drop out when they get to the secondary level. We may know the reason later in this paper.|
