Evaluation of the policy objectives of the reforms to the tertiary education system

Effah, Paul

Abstract:
The Government's White Paper on the Reforms to the Tertiary Education System has provided guidelines to the policies and practice of tertiary education since 1990. These reforms were intended, among others, to improve the quality of, and increase access to tertiary education, provide a sustainable basis for funding and create institutions to monitor and evaluate policy performance in the tertiary sub-sector.  In furtherance of these objectives, the Government initiated the Tertiary Education Project Phase I, referred to hereafter as TEP I, with assistance from the World Bank and the African Development Bank (ADB). A Committee was set up by the Ministry of Education to determine the extent to which the White Paper's Policy objectives have been attained by government and by the implementing institutions. The author hopes that lessons learned from this evaluation will constitute valuable guidance in the design of future projects, particularly TEP II. 
The author concludes that this report managed to identify the major reasons for the failure to achieve the White Paper's objectives.
