Improved Access to Senior High School Education for Girls

Ghana’s Free Senior High School Education Policy for students admitted into the various public Senior High Schools (SHS) exempts them from paying fees. The implementation of the policy saw increased admissions of students including girls’ enrollment which more than doubled.

Around the World, 129 million girls including 67 million of Senior High School are out of school. The Policy could therefore open access for more girls to obtain Senior High School Education.
