An amount of $40 million loan facility to improve some Senior High Schools in the country has been approved by Parliament.
This forms part of a financing agreement between the government of Ghana and the International Development Association of the World Bank.
According to the Chairman of Parliament’s Finance Committee, Dr. Mark Assibey Yeboah, “75 senior high schools will have their facilities upgraded to improve academic performance. Also, there will be quality improvement support to 107 additional schools.”
He added that “the committee finds the project immensely important towards enhancing secondary education in Ghana, to help provide more secondary level graduates with the relevant skills to enter tertiary institutions and the labour market.”
