This study explores the factors that account for the abandonment of projects within the Ghanaian public education sector. The study adopted a survey of selected contractors, project management practitioners and clients in charge of the delivery of Community Day Senior High School Building projects. Employing factor analysis and structural equation modelling, the factors were categorised into five – political leadership, culture, external forces resources/funding and administrative/institutional. All these sets of elements were statistically significant in causing Ghanaian public-sector education building construction infrastructure projects abandonment. However, the most significant collections of factors are political leadership, followed by poor administrative/institutional practices, poor resource/funding, cultural factors and external forces.
