Abstract: In recognition that education is fundamental to the development of a nation, countries have made strides towards achieving the Millennium Development Goal that states that,“By 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling.” In Ghana, as part of a wider educational policy of providing Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE), the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports introduced the Capitation Grant in 2005. This grant provides each school with 3.00 Ghana cedis (approximately $3.00 CDN) per student enrolled, and aims at replacing the revenue schools have lost due to the abolition of school fees. As parents no longer have to pay school fees to send their children to school, enrollment rates in schools increased.
