IDPRSP Program Survey Reports
During the three-year pilot phase that included 120 low-fee private schools that were initially scouted, we commissioned an independent evaluation by the Educational Assessment and Research Centre (EARC), a local research firm with extensive experience in conducting analytical research activities. The goal of the study was to assess any significant changes the participating schools experienced. The study was completed through quantitative and qualitative surveys, including focus groups consisting of proprietors, parents and teachers.
The results show how the IDPRSP training contributed to an increase in teacher salaries, a near-doubling of school profits, and an increase in school accountability efforts, including greater participation of parents, the formation of School Management Committees, and registration with Ghana Education Services.
