CDD-Ghana engages community-level stakeholders in Kumasi and Tamale on the Capitation Grant
The discussions were held on Radio Justice and Luv FM in Tamale and Kumasi respectively.
The sessions underscored the need for community stakeholders to monitor and promote transparency and accountability in the use of scarce public resources at the basic school level.
The live phone-in sessions also offered inhabitants of the two metropolitan areas the opportunity to interact and share ideas with the research officers of the Center.
The study tracked possible leakages and inefficiencies in the disbursement and usage of the Capitation Grant (CG) in thirty (30) public basic schools in Ghana. It tracked leakages in the disbursement of the grant from the Ghana Education Service (GES) through the District Education Units to the beneficiary schools, and assessed the robustness of the transparency and accountability measures that have been put in place for the efficient management of the funds.
