Education Statistics in Ghana

Ghana's spending on education has been around 25% of its annual budget in the past decade.
The Ghanaian education system from Kindergarten up to an undergraduate degree level takes 20 years.

The ratio of females to males in the total education system was 96.38% in 2011. The adult literacy rate in Ghana was 71.5% in 2010, with males at 78.3% and females at 65.3%. The youth female and male ages 15-24 years literacy rate in Ghana was 81% in 2010, with males at 82%, and females at 80%.

Since 2008, enrollment has continually increased at all level of education (pre-primary, primary, secondary and tertiary education). With 84% of its children in primary school, Ghana has a school enrollment "far ahead" of its sub-saharian neighbor's. The number of infrastructures has increased consequently on the same period. Vocational Education (in "TVET institutes", not-including SHS vocational and technical programs) is the only exception, with an enrollment decrease of 1,3% and the disappearance of more than 50 institutions between the years 2011/12 and 2012/2013. This drop would be the result of the low prestige of Vocational Education and the lack of demand from industry.
