Impact Evaluation of Basic Education in Ghana
For the study OED collected data in collaboration with Ghana Statistical Services (GSS) and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MOEYS). This survey followed on from the second round of the Ghana Living Standards Survey, conducted in 1988, and included a household survey, school questionnaire and English and math test administered to all household members aged 9-55. In addition to the OED report, the Ghanaian agencies produced their own analysis of the survey data utilizing Dutch trust funds for evaluation capacity development.
Through the collection of a broad range of data, the report is able to address a broad range of issues, in addition to impact of Bank education lending. For example, recommendations are made on the use of household survey data, rather than administrative data, in monitoring the education sector, and a policy-oriented analysis of teacher morale and absenteeism is presented.
