Fentiman, Alicia; Hall, Andrew; Bundy, Donald
Comparative Education, v35 n3 p331-49 Nov 1999
A school census of three rural regions of Ghana examined enrollments, student age and gender, age at first enrollment, gender disparities among classes, dropouts, and the proportion of never-enrolled children. Focus group discussions with parents, teachers, and children highlighted major obstacles confronting education: child labor, health problems, disadvantaged locations, and low female enrollment.
