Reflections on the Growth of School Population in Peki

According to records at the Balm Library , University of Ghana , school enrollment figures appreciated considerably in the Peki enclave. This was as a result of the faith Pekis have in benefits that may accrue by educating their children. Taking a cue from those who had the rare privilege of attending school earlier and their envious achievements. The records reflect that between 1916 and 1925/26, school attendance in Peki grew from 605 to 874. By 1946 , total number of Schools in the entire Peki communities was fourteen. Total school population stood at 1721. 1100 boys were enrolled and 621 girls were attending school throughout the length and breath of Peki. *Togbe Appiah Kwadzo VI*
