Additionally, over 6 million pupils have received foundational education support, with a GH¢248.5 million investment in Capitation Grants.

The initiatives align with constitutional provisions and international goals, emphasizing the government’s commitment to providing free, equitable, and quality education from basic to secondary levels.

The introduction of the Free Senior High School program in 2017 marked a significant milestone, resulting in an 11% increase in enrolment and a record-breaking 470,000 students enrolled in the 2017/18 academic year.
