Ministry of Education, Accra, June 23. 2021.
The Minister of Education, Hon Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum has charged the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Ghana (EPCG) to consciously investigate existing data on academic performances of their schools to bridge any looming disparity in the educational sector. He made the call during a historic visit by the largest church delegation to the ministry.
In a discussion, the minister noted that the world is ever evolving and the church needs to assess its
performance position critically while replicating best practices among thriving schools in weaker ones to keep them at par with other institutions. He congratulated the church on model schools such as Mawuli Senior High which was a top cluster school. He promised to impress
on the infrastructure team to urgently refurbish Kpenoe, a primary school owned by the church affected by rains in the Ho Municipal District.
