Ghana’s Quality of Education ranked 125 out of 183 countries in the latest report.

The latest report from the Global Youth Development Index sheds light on Ghana’s education quality, positioning it at 125th among 183 countries. Despite making some strides compared to previous evaluations, Ghana’s educational sector still grapples with notable challenges, trailing behind nations such as El Salvador in educational performance. The report underscores the need for ongoing assessment and scrutiny of youth development initiatives to ensure young people are adequately equipped with the necessary skills for active engagement in their countries’ social, economic, and political spheres.

Patricia Scotland, the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, emphasizes the importance of collaboration in addressing educational gaps, urging stakeholders to view it as a collective effort rather than a competition among nations. With the Commonwealth Education Ministers’ summit approaching and the African Union’s declaration of 2024 as the year of education, there exists a significant opportunity for stakeholders to align efforts towards advancing educational goals, particularly amidst the integration of technologies like artificial intelligence in education.

Despite pockets of progress, challenges persist across regions, with Sub-Saharan Africa experiencing both improvements and setbacks in education. While there are positive developments in certain countries, the journey towards achieving universal quality education remains complex. Therefore, policymakers, educators, and stakeholders must collaborate, leveraging insights from global indices like the Youth Development Index to implement evidence-based interventions and foster inclusive educational systems that empower youth and drive sustainable development.
