Girl-Child Education Outcomes: A Case Study from Ghana
Arku, Frank S.; Angmor, Emmanuel N.; Tetteh, Isaac K.
Educational Research Quarterly, v38 n1 p3-26 Sep 2014
The importance of girl-child education is largely documented and initiatives to promote girl-child education are widespread. However, studies on service delivery methods, processes and the impacts are limited in the literature. This study assessed the Plan Ghana's girl-child educational project. According to the findings, the project has helped to improve the girls' confidence level and performance in examination. They associated more with their colleagues from affluent homes, and the financial burdens on their parents were also lessened. However, more girls need to be supported and boys with the same socio-economic backgrounds of the girls also need to be assisted by such educational projects/programs.
