About this product
- DescriptionA positive contribution of formal education to development has become widely accepted and rarely questioned. Schooling has been generally assumed as a producer of creativity and therefore a causal factor for ecomic and social change. Employers have regarded schooling as providing skills, preparing youth for ecomic functions in an increasing complex techlogical society, including socializing them to fit into new models of ecomic organisations, thus helping them into higher incomes and status - a step forward in a success-oriented ecomy. This study examines the correlation between the formal educational system and development in Ghana, and comes to the conclusion that the widespread hypothesis that expanding schooling in itself increases social welfare which results in national ecomic growth is still to be questioned.
