Education in Northern Region

The majority of children who go to school are boys, whilst education is such an important contribution to the social development of children. Primary education provides the children with knowledge, skills and standards & values so that they can fully develop and have the opportunity to discover their talents. Secondary education gives depth to this knowledge and prepares students for vocational training or to study. Within Northern Region, the Ghana Education Service is dominant. By far the most educational facilities are from the GES. In addition, there are some private initiatives for primary education. When students want to learn further, there are only a few possibilities. mostly they have to go to biger towns to follow through with their education.
