MOE Debunks Legatum Prosperity Index Report

According to him, contrary to the misleading report by certain media outlets, Ghana's overall prosperity has been on an upward trajectory, suggesting positive advancements across multiple sectors, including education.

The Ministry of Education (MOE) has debunked claims by Legatum Prosperity Index that Ghana’s Secondary Education ranked 137 out of 167 countries in the world.

In a statement signed by the ministry’s spokesperson Kwasi Kwarteng, he said the Legatum Prosperity Index is a comprehensive framework designed to evaluate countries based on their efforts to enhance residents’ well-being, encompassing both economic and social dimensions. 

“While it assesses nations across 12 key pillars of prosperity, secondary education is not part of its metric”, he said.

The MOE Spokesperson explained that instead, the Index considers factors such as economic quality, governance, social capital, investment environment, enterprise conditions, infrastructure, market access, living conditions, health, and education at various levels.

“Therefore, the assertion that Ghana’s secondary education was ranked 137th out of 167 countries within this framework is inaccurate and misleading. The most recent report, from 2023, positions Ghana at 98th out of 176 countries, showcasing a significant improvement from its 2013 ranking of 101”, Kwasi Kwarteng explained.
