Ghana free education reforms prompt waiting lists, social problems

Published
Improvements to Ghana's public high school system have led to declining enrolments, and closures, of many private schools.
At the same time, many students are spending months waiting to secure a free high school place.
Critics say the wait is causing a rise in social problems, as young people with too much spare time are turning to drugs and prostitution.
Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris reports from Odupong, outside Ghana's capital Accra.
