Chair & Co-Founder

The IDP Foundation, Inc. and the World Bank co-hosted an Education Stakeholders Meeting on Wednesday, 29 March 2017 at the Alisa Hotel in Accra, Ghana. The half-day event brought together government officials, development partners, NGOs and other stakeholders in education to discuss and identify opportunities for effective collaboration and engagement between the Ghana Education Service and Ministry of Education with the low-fee private school sector in Ghana. Additionally, stakeholders examined practical actions that can be taken to include low-fee private schools and identify where more research is needed to promote evidence-based policymaking.

During the workshop, attendees were organized into 12 groups to discuss the four following policy recommendations:

  • Strengthened regulatory environment
  • Increased data availability on private schools
  • Strengthened operating environment
