The formal education system that Ghana inherited from the British was one designed to serve the colonial government and European missionaries. The principal aim as far as the British were concerned was to train clerks for the colonial administration and mercantile firms, lower level technicians for the medical and research centres, and teachers for the schools. The missionaries, on the other hand, trained priests and catechists to spread the gospel and provide training in line with European moral standards.
