GHANA-VOTE-EDUCATION

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY CHRIS STEIN Labone Senior High School students stand outisde a classroom building on December 1, 2012 in Accra. Ghana's main opposition presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party, is offering parents ahead of the December 7 elections a deal that seems difficult to refuse: abolishing fees at senior high schools, which can amount to several hundred dollars per term, and keep education out of reach for many families. The ruling party and incumbent President John Dramani Mahama says the idea is great on paper, but not yet possible as the money shortage could greatly harm education in this nation of 20 million people. The voters will have their say, but the fact that a true policy debate has occurred seems to be another sign of Ghana's maturing democracy.
