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.
