Title: Assessing the delivery of Education in Ghana: a case of Ejisu-Juaben Municipality
Authors: Attrams, Daniel
Issue Date: 17-Aug-2015
Abstract: In all aspects of schooling and its surrounding educational community, the rights of the child to survival, protection, development and participation are at the centre of the aim of education. This means that the focus of education is on learning which strengthens the capacities of children to act progressively. However, learning cannot take place effectively without any structures controlling the teaching and learning processes. It is from this background that the research was carried out to examine the roles and responsibilities of the PTAs, SMCs, MEOC, and MEPT in promoting quality education delivery, and the challenges they face in carrying out their duties within the Ejisu-Juaben Municipality. Case study research design was adopted for the research. Seven different units of analysis from 53 schools were contacted for their views concerning quality education delivery. These are: the School Management Committees (SMCs), Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs), Municipal Education Oversight Committee (MEOC), Municipal Education Planning Team (MEPT), the Head teachers, teachers and pupils of the selected schools. It was realized that generally, the decentralized education structures (the PTAs, SMCs, MEOC, and MEPT) are performing their roles well to promote quality education delivery and this was due to reinforcement strategies that was embarked upon in 2007. There are however some inhibiting factors to the performance of the decentralized structures in promoting quality education delivery some of which are poor coordination, weak monitoring and ineffective supervision. It is therefore recommended among other things that there should be strict enforcement of rules and regulations in the educational system, coordination should be reinforced and motivational strategies should be put in place to ensure continued promotion of quality education in the municipality.
