CSA was the community-mobilization component of USAID/Ghana's Quality Improvement in Primary Schools program, an initiative under Ghana's Free Compulsory University Basic Education program. CSA aimed to improve community participation in more than 300 primary schools throughout Ghana. This highly participatory effort strove to build an environment of mutual respect, responsibility, and action among community members, schools, and education administrators as they worked to meet the learning needs of Ghanaian children. In 2002, CSA entered a new phase in which, in addition to ongoing community work, EDC trained district-level education managers to use data for decision making at the local level.
