Factors that impact girls’ education in Ghana: the role of cultural mind-set
This research explores fully, cultural mind-set, as the main factor that underlies the problem of girls’ education in Ghana, rather than poverty. This research highlights and analyses the cultural aspects of Ghanaian society that impede girls to enter schooling and break out of the cycle of poverty. In the first part, this study focuses on feminist theories from “developing” countries as a theoretical framework. The second part of this research analyses the traditions and customs against girls ‘education, concluding with some recommendations.
