To the Christian Council of Ghana, government’s desire to reconsider granting control of “mission schools” back to the churches is a welcome decision.
Speaking on Accra TV station, Joy News, Rev. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong hailed the move by government as one that would strengthen the moral fiber of the nation.
According to Opuni, moral standards in Ghana are fast declining and this is bringing about an increase in corruption among other vices.
The scribe of the council noted that the current curriculum of the Ghana Education Service is currently structured with several subjects “thrown in, just to excite the students”.
“We are not paying much attention to morality in our schools so what that means is that we are producing intelligent criminals,” he noted.
He feared that very little attention was being paid to moral studies in schools. ““We are producing intelligent Ghanaian who are smart to take a huge chunk of money which is supposed to go into health, education etc and share among themselves”, he opined.
“Sadly, we are having more of that and it is not only with one political party, but all of them. Contractors under the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and New Patriotic Party (NPP) are all the same,” he said.
He noted that Ghana needed to make sure that morality is woven into the educational curriculum of Ghana.
