Strengthening Parliament’s oversight of the education sector- STAR-Ghana meets Parliament’s Select committee, others.


STAR Ghana Foundation in collaboration with Africa Education Watch, SEND Ghana and Parliament’s select Committee on Education held a strategic meeting to discuss reports and surveys produced on education services delivery in Ghana. The report which captured an analysis of the 2022 national budget revealed an allocation of 12.9% to the education sector which does not meet the UNESCO threshold of 15 to 20% of public expenditure. The Ministry of Finance, Education Ministry(MoE), Ghana Education Service, National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection(MoGCSP) and Scholarship Secretariat during deliberations at the meeting presents status reports and recommendations. Among the key issues, it was recommended that the Scholarship Secretariat diversify avenues for advertising scholarships to widen reach. Also, MoE and MoGCSP has been to invest in early childhood education in the public sector by building more early childhood centres/nurseries.
