The Impact of Investments in School Quality on Cognitive Skills
The remaining chapters of this book apply the methodology developed in the previous chapters to an unusually rich data set from Ghana. This chapter presents an analysis of the determinants of cognitive achievement in middle schools in Ghana using data from the 1988–89 Ghana Living Standards Survey (GLSS).1 More specifically, it presents estimates of equations (2.2) and (2.3) in Chapter 2. Later chapters will present different estimates of the impact of cognitive skills on different socioeconomic variables; in doing so, they will be presenting estimates of equation (2.1) in Chapter 2.
