Abstract:The five papers in this special section, introduced and edited by Akosua Adomako Ampofo, discuss some of the challenges facing education in Ghana today. They were presented at a panel entitled 'The state of education in Ghana and its implications for development', which was held at the 2000 African Studies Association Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas. Francis Agbodeka examines the current state of education in Ghana, tracing the development of education in the country from traditional through (modern) Western forms. Kwasi Ansu-Kyeremeh examines the implications of the process of globalization for literacy education delivery in Ghana. David Owusu-Ansah presents an overview of the history of Islamic education in Ghana. Mansah Prah, taking a gender perspective, looks at women academics and administrators at the University of Cape Coast (UCC). Based on a case study from urban Ghana, Akosua Adomako Ampofo examines the question of whether women's education matters in childbearing decisionmaking. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
