History and Politics
This volume arises from a cooperation between Ghanaian and German academics. It answers the need to have a more comprehensive and up to date volume which addresses key topics, areas and problems of the Ghanaian education system with a focus on history, policy, and curriculum-related issues. For many years now there have not been new comprehensive publications in this field, and it is necessary to introduce a lot of recent changes in Ghana’s education system and reflect about their challenges. The information and positions collected in this volume will be of interest to Policy Makers, Educators, Lecturers, Scholars, Students, Teachers, Parents and other interested people of Ghana and other (West)-African countries. The book will also be of great interest to international scholars who want to understand the Ghanaian education system or are involved in academic projects such as internship, exchange programmes and joint research activities with Ghanaian academics and educational institutions.

“One of the boldest elements of this book lies in the introduction. It invites readers to consider looking at education from a series of wide-angled perspectives which bring home the impacts of political and ideological hegemonies on the evolution of education in Ghana over time … The editors make the point that they intend for the book to raise issues. Well, it most certainly has, and this has led to a rather eclectic volume which speaks to a wide range of educational matters.”
