Education is one of the key to success is what they used to say in today’s 21st century.
According to Wikipedia, Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, morals, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include teaching, training, storytelling, discussion and directed research.
In addition, education can be defined as the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. You would need to go to Kindergarten, Primary, Junior High School, then to Senior High School before being able to acquire a tertiary education — that is the University education.
In Ghana, there are many universities that are operating under the Ministry of Education in collaboration with Ghana Education Service — to provide better education to the average Ghanaian individual wanting to acquire the knowledge and skills formally.
