Journal on School Educational Technology Volume 6, Number 3, ISSN 0973-2217


Inclusive education is critical for nation building. The government of Ghana has put in measures for promoting inclusion from basic through to tertiary level of education. Some of these measures include expansion of school facilities, implementation of the Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE); the change of policy on girls who drop out of school due to pregnancy for them to return and the school feeding programme for promoting retention in school. These efforts have yielded some results such as increase in enrolment at all levels of education. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative data, this paper discusses the measures for promoting inclusive education in Ghana, issues emerging and strategies for improvement.
