Contribution of Ghana’s School Feeding Programme On Enrollment and Academic Performance of Public Basic Schools. A Case of Students in West Mamprusi Municipality


The study’s goal was to determine how the Ghana School Feeding Programme affected basic school education. The study primarily examined the impact of the Ghana School Feeding Programme on the enrollment and academic performance of students in basic school.  Mixed methods approach was used in the examination of some selected basic schools in Ghana’s North Eastern Region, West Mamprusi Municipality that were participating in the Ghana School Feeding Programme. For the purpose of this study, teachers, head teachers and students were involved. 2,028 students formed the study population, and 200 students were chosen at random to represent the sample size. To create the sample size, twelve (12) teachers/head teachers in all were purposively chosen. The major research instrument used was questionnaire, supported by interview. The reliability of the instruments was evaluated using the tests-retest approach. The test-retest correlation coefficient demonstrated the validity and reliability of the questionnaires. The study discovered that the Ghana School Feeding Programme was a crucial and important factor determining enrollment and academic performance of students in basic education in the study schools. The study’s findings indicate that the Ghana School Feeding Programme is still vital to the achievement of fundamental education and that every effort should be made to broaden its structures and purview for the good of all schools. Consequently, it is advised that the implementation committees at the Municipality should continue to monitor the quality and quantity of the daily meals provided for students in order to reduce hunger and enhance enrollment, concentration and performance in classrooms. Meals must also be nutritionally balanced and provided on time.
