This policy brief illuminates the behaviour of rural poor households toward fee-free public schools and growth of low fee private schools. The analysis is based on data from a household survey and interviews of three rural communities in the Mfantseman district in southern Ghana. Based on the findings, it suggests policies that have the potential to improve access among the poorest. This policy brief is based on an article in the CREATE special issue of the International Journal of Educational Development.
