Ashesi University

by Andrew Gillen

William Easterly calls our attention to Ashesi University in Ghana. Begun in 2002, the school is growing rapidly.
Despite widespread international publicity as a homegrown success, Ashesi has yet to receive a single dollar of official aid (one famous official aid agency turned Awuah down when he refused to raise his student-teacher ratios to what he saw as unacceptable levels).
The schools website is here, and a recent Seattle Times interview is here.
