|Abstract:||This thesis, “The Development of Agricultural Education in Colonial Ghana: 1874-1957”, explores the evolution and change of agricultural education in colonial Ghana. It examines the structures that supported the development of agricultural education and how such structures were reorganized to meet new challenges that faced agricultural education in the colony. The period of the study, 1874-1957, is significant because it is the time frame of British colonialism in the Gold Coast. The aim of this study is to determine how agricultural education was promoted to aid in the exploitation of the cash crops by the British government in the Gold Coast. The nature of agricultural education in colonial Ghana is examined to ascertain whether agricultural education in colonial Ghana was for the interest of the indigenes or the colonial state. Considering the efforts made by the British government in providing administrative structures and measures in the development of agricultural education in the formal and non-formal sectors of colonial Ghana, this study shows that agricultural education in colonial Ghana was designed and implemented to serve the colonial state.|
