Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Ghana has suffered many turbulent years in the fifty years since they gained their independence from British rule, but with nearly forty percent of the population under fifteen years old, the government of Ghana has taken important steps to ensure that all children living in Ghana receive the education and safety required to make them productive adults. With a blend of traditional and New World values, Ghana's education system has evolved to allow all children, from the largest cities to the smallest villages, an opportunity to learn and become proactive citizens. In addition, new social services agencies have been developed that offer children living on the streets a chance at education. They also ensure that children will have an opportunity to live in a clean, healthy environment. But the text does not focus solely on education. It also highlights how teens enjoy their free time and takes pains to emphasize the importance of family in Ghana. This text is part of the "Global Connections" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
