The founder of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has told government to return mission schools to their founding churches.
According to him, the mission-based schools, noted for discipline and outstanding academic results are now churning out very bad results in the last few years.

Ndoum is not the first to ask government to return mission schools to their founding churches.
The Christian Council of Ghana in August asked government to hand over the yet to be constructed 200 community day Senior High Schools (SHS) to the churches.
The Council said the churches in Ghana have shown their competence in running schools through the management of mission schools.
General Secretary of the Christian Council, Rev Dr Kwabena Opuni Frimpong said the schools should be handed over to the churches since they have “shown over the years that they are worthy partners in managing educational institutions.”
