The Ghana Education Service (GES) has commenced the collection of data on all known pre-tertiary level schools thus Kindergarten, Primary, JHS and SHS.
The Education Management Information System (EMIS) is one of Ghana’s main national datasets about education.
According to the GES, it is through the annual school census that the Ministry Of Education collects, analyses, and disseminates school-level data about all known pre-tertiary level schools (public and private) in the country.
