World Bank pumps $150 million into Ghana's education
On Thursday, 18th June, 2020, the President of Ghana launched the Ghana Accountability and Learning Outcomes Project.
The $219 million Project comprises a set of interventions that addresses constraints from teaching to learning in our schools. Through GALOP, teachers, in the early grades, will be provided with continuous training, in line with the new curriculum; schools will receive teaching and learning materials; heads of schools will be trained on improved school management techniques; and supervision and assessment systems will be strengthened.
Ten thousand (10,000) low-performing basic schools, across the country, have already been selected to benefit from the Project, and I am confident that the implementation of GALOP will help drive standards and quality in these schools
