Ghana’s schools’ search revolution

Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another. Education is a form of learning that allows knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people which are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is commonly divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship.

At the global level, Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes the right of everyone to education. Education is certainly important and parents and schools have a great role to play. However, engaging in active schools search and finding the preferred choice of school has always been a challenge. It has been revealed that a preferred school could be based on the following standards; The school’s facilities, environment, curriculum, school fees, location, extra-curricular activities, summer programmes, just to mention a few. In this technological age where parents are becoming more sophisticated with what their children are exposed to, parents are very keen on identifying the right school for their children since schools play a major role in the total development of children. This explains why parents will definitely go to every extent to get what in their view is the best school for their children.
