Ghanaians have easy access to primary (elementary) and secondary (middle school) schools.
To finish school, it takes about 20 years. Children begin their education at the age of three or four starting from nursery school to kindergarten, then primary school (elementary school), junior high school and senior high school (secondary school), and finally university. The average age at which a child enters primary school is 6 years. Ghanaians have relatively easy access to good education. In the past decade, Ghana's spending on education has been around 25 percent of its annual budget. Primary and Secondary school alone are cheap, but when you add the cost of uniforms and school equipment, it cost more. Children will often support their family and stay to help. At 16, children start working and some start earlier. Around 1 million Ghana kids will stay home and work.
Culture, and Traditions
Ghanaians come from ethnic groups (6 main ones). The groups are the Akan(Ashani andFanti),the Ewe,the Ga-Adangbe,the Mole-Dagbani, the Guan and the Gurma. If you ever decide to go to Ghana make sure you do everything with your right hand. Ghanaians always prefer you use your right hand. If you dip your left hand in someones plate(in Ghana), you have just committed a huge insult.
