This chapter and the next are case studies of cost sharing in
education. The first case study is of Ghana, and the next chapter covers

scale survey data are from the Ghana Living Standards Survey of which the latest
round collected data for 1992.75 As I have already emphasised, my
small scale surveys are intended to yield qualitative insights and are not

statistical probability analysis.

carried out by staff of the Ministry of Education. They were Steven Agyarkwa,
Eunice Dappah, Nana Dwomoh, Gottfried Gome, Daniel Konadu, and Daniel Zogblah,
supported by Yaw Dwomoh and R. J. Mettle-Nunoo. Florence Hianno and Herbert
Gorman checked and entered the data on computer. I am also grateful to H. N.
