ABSTRACT Career decision and programme selection in the senior high school continues to be problematic for parents, students and other stakeholders due to the challenges it presents. The purpose of this study was to find out how the career decisions of senior high school students affect their choice of academic programmes. The descriptive survey design was employed for this study. The researcher used both questionnaire and interviews as the main instruments for data collection. The target population for the study was all the first students of Kadjebi-Asato senior high school. These students would have completed the process of selecting a programme and will be asked to reflect on the process. In all, 80 students were used for the study. Simple random sampling strategy under the probability sampling technique was employed to select respondents for the study. Tables and percentages were used for the analysis of the response. Findings showed that the career decisions of senior high school students strongly affect their choice of academic programmes. It also emerged from the study that students consider their own interest, intellectual abilities, parents’ advice, friends/peers career choice, individual value, societal perception, teachers’ advice, occupation of parents among others when making career decisions. It also came out that students can best be assisted to make realistic choices in their career decisions through career guidance being given a slot on the school time table, field trips to companies to expose students to the world of work, organization of career conferences, formation of career guidance clubs in schools and the provision of school based guidance counselors. Based on the findings, it was recommended that the Ghana education service should ensure that each educational unit has a guidance and counseling centre to offer guidance services to students, parents and teachers relating to careers and other social issues. These centers will also serve as a place where students can go to gather more information on matters relating to career and other personal issues.

General Knowledge in Art (GKA) is a core subject for Visual Arts students in Ghana's Senior High Schools but an elective for Home Economics students. Unlike Textiles, Ceramics and allied Visual Arts subjects which are taught by specialist teachers, GKA has no specialist teachers: all Visual Arts teacher are deemed competent to effectively deliver the GKA curriculum; hence teaching and student achievement in GKA varies according to the strengths of GKA teachers. This paper describes an investigation of how the teaching methods, instructional strategies and resources employed by GKA teachers in Ghana's Senior High Schools affect student achievement in the subject. Using findings analyzed from qualitative and quantitative data gathered via questionnaire administration to 420 GKA students (Visual Arts = 227 or 54.0%; Home Economics = 193 or 46.0%) in four schools in Ashanti Region; interview with nine GKA teachers, school librarians and storekeepers, as well as observation of 14...

This article focuses on how accommodation reforms have impacted the lives of students in Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. Attention has been paid to history of the various residency and non-residency policies since the inception of the university. The study re-hushes the fact that the prevailing conditions in 1960 are vastly different from 2013. It studies how these policies have evolved since 1960 as well as their impact on students over the years. The article concludes among other things that the university should build more halls or hostels at a subsidized amount. They could do this by entering into partnership with firms, groups and organizations. Keywords: kwame nkrumah university of science and technology, halls, university education, accommodation, hostel.
