Authors: Kuchulah, Peter
Issue Date: 11-Apr-2016
Abstract: Education is the process of learning geared or directed towards assisting the individual to acquire knowledge, skills and to improve his or her life. The main purpose of this research is solving the problem of locating a Senior High School in the Kassena Nankana district. Ten (10) towns in the district were considered, which are; Nakong, Katiu, Chiana, Kajelo, Kayilo, Paga, Nakolo, Sirigu, Manyoro and Binania. Since the problem is a desirable one, we formulated the problem using the p-median model developed by Hakimi (1964; 1965). Reduction heuristic (RH1, RH2 and RRH) was used to solve the p-median problem. According to the model, the Senior High school should be sited at Chiana with objective value of 56234.
